Ten-year-old Anina Yatay Salas does not like her name; each part is a palindrome, which means it reads the same way forwards and backwards. Anina’s schoolmates love to tease her about it until Anina can’t take it anymore and gets into a fight during recess with her arch-enemy. Their punishment is rather unusual: they are each given a sealed envelope by the principal and told not to open it until next week. The mystery will eat at Anina and get her into trouble. Drawn in a pencil-and-watercolor style, the whole family will fall in love with Anina and this delightful film.

A Anina Yatay Salas, de diez años, no le gusta su nombre; cada parte en él es un palíndromo, es decir, se lee igual de izquierda a derecha y viceversa. A sus compañeros de clase les encanta mortificarla hasta que Anina no aguanta más y se enfrasca en una pelea durante el recreo con su archienemiga. Su castigo es bastante inusual: la directora les entrega a cada una un sobre sellado y les dice que no lo abran hasta la próxima semana. El misterio se comerá a Anina por dentro y la meterá en problemas. Toda la familia se enamorará de Anina y de esta encantadora película dibujada con lápiz y acuarela.

Anina won the Audience Award at the 2013 Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema.
