Event description

Description

The young Xiaobin reunites in Argentina with her family after some time apart. Wanting to learn Spanish, she works in a grocery store to pay for lessons, which she keeps a secret. As her language skills evolve, she starts dating Vijay, an Indian customer. When she learns the form of possibility, which is the “perfect future tense” or “conditional”, she starts to ponder what would happen if she were to tell her parents about Vijay.
