The Academy Award winning tale of a transgender woman mourning her lost lover from red-hot Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Lelio.
Santiago bar singer Marina Vidal, played by sensational trans actress Daniela Vega, is headstrong, vivacious, confident and beautiful. After her much older lover Orlando (Francisco Reyes) dies suddenly, Marina wants to grieve just as anyone would.
When met with suspicion and prejudice by authorities and Orlando's family, Marina boldly steps forward to expose the banality of intolerance and prove that she is, indeed, a fantastic woman.
