Three women meet by chance at the end of the world and set out on a polyamorous journey which will change them to the extent of returning them to their native city as different people. Subjects who suffer from the established order, from the irreversible nature of passion and from the Utopian approach of a single love, they are caught up in the search for new kinds of relationships, far from possession and pain as the unavoidable finality of love and obeying none of the rules. That's how they become The Daughters of Fire: a band dedicated to accompanying other women in the search for their own erotica, for the way each one wants to be in a world ignorant of the voluptuousness of detachment.Written by
1. The main characters have really good chemistry together.
2. The film is decently well-shot. It's nothing special but it gets the job done.
1. The sex scenes are ridiculously incessant (there are 3 within the first 30 minutes), and it's just porn for the sake of being shocking.
2. There's forced conflict at the start when a random guy starts calling the main characters "dykes" out-of-nowhere.
3. Apparently, in this universe, a small woman can beat up two fully grown men with one punch. It's incredibly unrealistic.
4. The soundtrack is played far too loud.
5. The movie has no likable or interesting characters. The film is clearly more interested in the Progressive messaging than the story or the characters.
6. The movie is really slow-paced, especially when very little happens.
7. There is some bizarre and forced anti-Christian messaging thrown in.
