Bógota, Columbia: Ten young women live in a shelter for homeless women. Each of them closes their eyes in front of the camera and pictures an imaginary friend named Alis. Alis - fellow sufferer, friend, one of them. What happened to her? Only an abstract idea at first, Alis comes closer and closer with time.

Alis is an impressive portrait of young women who, no matter how bad life has been for them, still have an inspiring resilience in their lives.
