Tina (Guevara) is an undocumented Mexican-born trans woman living in New York with her beloved grandmother Eliana (Cruz). Tina is full of positive energy in the face of many obstacles, including boyfriend Jason (Kruz) who refuses to introduce her to his family.

A poignant portrait of a trans woman confronted by a world that struggles to accept her, Flavio Alves’ SXSW Audience Award-winner is unsentimental and very touching, with Tina’s trials illuminating the prejudices faced by a wider community in a film where all the trans characters are played by trans actors.
