Digital presentation - Chica Busca Chica is Spain’s answer to The L Word. In this sexy and cute show we are introduced to a group of ladies looking for love in all the right and sometimes wrong places as they play musical beds to their hearts’ desire. This episodic series has been packaged into a feature length presentation to make it’s North American Debut for all the ladies in Miami! Nines is a butch player in the series. She wakes up from a one-night stand with Monica but soon discovers she is far more interested in pursuing Monica’s bicurious roommate Carmen, who she bumps into in the kitchen on her way to making a quick exit. Things get complicated because Monica was expecting more than a one-night tryst from her efforts with Nines and hoping for a long term relationship. Employing the complexities at which Spanish film- and television-makers excel, we next learn that Carmen has a boyfriend, albeit a lying, cheating boyfriend. Nonetheless she is involved in a heterosexual relationship. But who doesn’t love a challenge? These girls sure have their work cut out for them as they navigate life, love and the pursuit of sexual satisfaction in fast-paced Madrid . Chica Busca Chica may be low on budget but it is big on appeal. Made by and for women, this series is what Latinas, and the women who love them, have always wanted…a lesbian novella with sexy Spanish girls. Chica Busca Chica is a guilty pleasure that will have you yearning for more.
