    • Synopsis
    • Luca longs for his lost love; Thalles for a name change; Raul to be a better person. They all share one element: they were born as women. Now they have to deal with living in one of the most hostile countries for transgender people.

      Luca left his home town 12 years ago. Despite that, he still maintains affective bonds with the place and the people. Luca returns from time to time to go to the doctor in charge of his gender transition or to visit his brother and friends. This time he decided to return for a secret reason: to go after Ana, his first love. They don´t see each other since Luca was still a girl. But he didn´t expect this reencounter would colide with the biggest decision in his life.

      Luca crosses path with two other transgender men. Raul is a philosophy student who wants to be a teacher. He is married to Bel and he dreams about studing english in London. Thalles is a security guard at a bank branch, but he hates his job. He is in love with Fernanda, a feminist actress, and he is planning to start his own business. But first he needs to face burocracy and prejudice in order to get his male name on his documents. What they all have in common is the urgency of living a life that has just begun.
