Marina, a young transgender actress and singer in Chile, and Orlando, an older man who owns a printing company, are in love and planning for the future. After Orlando suddenly falls ill and dies, Marina is forced to confront his family and society, and to fight to show them who she is: a complex, strong, forthright, and fantastic woman. 100 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles. 

“A magnetic screen presence, Vega (Marina) … rises with ease, capturing our attention, engaging our sympathies, and stealing our hearts.” – Mark Kermode, The Guardian
