Summary

"The boss put a wet finger in his mouth and rubbed his gums to taste it. Second rate he said, so I said no, thanks, I pass, knowing what cut cocaine does to you, and just kept drinking booze. I should have taken some to feel on top. But I didn´t."

Three women a mother and her two daughters are the main characters of a story that takes place in a precarious household in downtown Buenos Aires marked by the father's death and the oldest sister's absence. Ely and Jesica, the narrator, live with their mother who is constantly complaining about the burden of supporting them. With difficulty, Jesica tries to make do in a hostile environment where love and money seem destined to other people. But again and again, as if life had become a whirlpool, his memory returns to the same dark moment of her past, a family black hole that devours all hope. That is until a neighbour who “reads your gaze and performs purifications” offers a few clues that will bring the sisters to a revelation.

Depicting an abyss of instability and violence, UNA NENA MUY BLANCA is designed with a delicacy that contrast with the crude events narrated.
