Synopsis

At the very end of the world, three women meet by chance, starting a life-changing polyamorous journey. A journey along the routes and through time that turns into pure joy, rivers of pleasure and fun. They slowly unwind as they explore irreversible passion and the utopia of monogamous love, far from possession and pain, as the inevitable end to a love that fits no canon. Through her notes, Violeta tells us about the adventures of the Daughters of Fire: a group of women in the search of their own erotica.
