An eye-opening film by one of Chile’s most exciting new directors that is both sombre and uplifting, bleak and empowering. Marina is a waitress moonlighting as singer in a cocktail bar. She and Orlando are madly in love, but on the night of her birthday, he falls gravely ill. Her involvement in her partners untimely death, and her right to mourn are called into question when Marina - a transgendered woman - has to deal with the intolerances and microaggressions of the authorities and Orlando’s family.

Daniela Vega gives a heartfelt and deeply compassionate performance as Marina in this defiantly honest portrayal of a trans woman fighting through her grief.
