Marieta wants to stop being called Adolfo once and for all; she wants that name erased from her ID card forever. She hates being named after her father and having the same 20 centimetres dangling between her legs that she inherited from him too. Marieta wants to be called Marieta and be a respected, full-fledged woman. She suffers from narcolepsy, an neurological disorder that causes drowsiness, and is always dropping off to sleep in the most inopportune situations. It's during these sleeping fits that Marieta acquires the most wonderful singing voice and the gift of languages; they are the source of all her longing, and of the songs, fundamental moments in the film.
''20 centimetres'' is fresh and sassy yet tender and sensitive, a musical super-comedy in which the characters confront extreme situations and express their feelings frankly and simply.
