In presence of director Laura Grandinetti and actor and actresses Sebastián Tornamira, Dana Crosa, Julieta Zapiola and Donna Sanguinetti.


After Cata's passing, her friends, Luciana, Bruno and Paula, receive an urn with her ashes and an unusual list of to-do tasks. As they resolve the latter, they avoid connecting with the pain Cata's passing away proposes: they laugh, fight, escape, dance, kiss and, finally, say goodbye. 


Note from the artistic direction

A biting and impertinent writing, a daring and creative directing, Rather Burn is like a fire full of freshness inviting us to join the adventures of Luciana, Bruno and Paula. With a funerary urn under one arm and an unlikely to-do list in hand, we ride along, between joy and tears, while they say goodbye to their friend Cata.
