OIFF 2014 presents “Chess Game” (with “Butterfly Fluttering”)

CHESS GAME

Mina, Beth and Martona are locked in Talavera Bruce Penitentiary, in Rio de Janeiro. Mina (Priscila Fantin) is the brain of the group, Beth is the impulsive one, and Martona is pure muscle. Mina controls the jail by selling drugs and goods, smuggled in by her sister, Jullienne. Mina is doing time for social security fraud, involving Senator Franco. The Senator thinks that she could snitch him to the authorities. So, he decided to bribe the warden to put an end to her life. But she is strong and smart, and the attempts against her are in vain. Now, it started a game of challenges and fight over power inside the pen, which the strongest and smarter will succeed.

Special added attraction: Butterfly Fluttering
She is a modern girl, young, beautiful, and she tries to follow their own instincts. She is searching for someone to love and real feelings. Perhaps she just wants to feel alive. See the trailer and learn more at the Ottawa International Film Festival site.
