It’s the first day of the final year of secondary school.

Meisa lost her spots over the summer. Barrientos is late.

And Juan still knows all the answers. Three teenagers

feel the first blows of love, cruelty and kindness as

they float somewhere between the classroom and

the cosmos. Cosmica takes an honest and poignant

snapshot of life through an adolescent lens. Meisa and

Juan’s new-found romance is changing their sense of

themselves, the world and the universe. But no matter

how much they stare at the skies, pressures from their

classmates, teachers and social media notifications

bring them down to earth. When intimate photos

are posted around the school, their world will take

another painful spin.
