Writer and director Dan Rubenstein’s feature debut draws attention to Argentina’s abortion laws. 27-year-old Noemí Gold (Catalina Berarducci) has an unwanted pregnancy. After experiencing what she believes to be an allergic reaction to Misoprostol – commonly known as the abortion pill – Noemí seeks out the help of a gynecologist, who promptly reports her to the police. She is not charged with any crime, but she discovers she is still pregnant. This news coincides with the arrival of Noemí’s estranged cousin from Los Angeles, a social media ‘comedian’ with millions of followers and questionable talent. With little support from her roommate Rosa Betancourt (Martina Juncadella) and a circle of self-involved friends, Noemí has only herself to rely on while navigating her current desperate straits.
Noemí Gold is a fresh contemporary story with a great touch of humor that meditates on family, friends, and the role of society in present times.
