Synopsis

Morena is a trans woman who lives with her elderly mother in the southern area of Buenos Aires suburbs, in a comfortable family home. The relationship with her mother is peaceful. One of her peculiarities is that during her adult life Morena has only worked in metallurgical workshops, another one is that she is determined to never consent to paid sex.

She usually hangs out with other transvestites, one of them is Claudia, who having graduated as a teacher has just started her first job as a substitute teacher, another one of them is Myriam, who is very young and beautiful and is immersed in a maelstrom of excesses linked to working as a prostitute with police protection.

Morena receives information letting her know that Ricardo, her current partner, has lied to her from the very beginning, he is married, father of two children, and fakes a perfect heterosexual facade. Aware of the lie, Morena decides to end the relationship.

Marcia is a friend of Morena’s. She is a beautiful young heterosexual who only establishes love relationships with older or married men so as not to compromise.

By sharing the experiences that take place around her, Morena discovers how difficult it actually is, something that could be basic, to be accepted and loved for being who she is.
