    • Synopsis
    • Tamara, Desiree and Victoria are Venezuelan women who live in Caracas and at first glance have little in common. Tamara is a lawyer and college teacher. Desiree is a hairdresser and spends all her free time with Coco, her dog. Victoria, the youngest, studies Art and Visual Media.
      However, all three share much more than the city they live in: they carry an ID that show a name that is not theirs. They are transgender women who claim to be born in a sex opposite to their gender, the one they assumed a while ago and now defend as a flag. The flag of being a woman in a society where sexism and diversity phobia stain with prejudice the minds of its people.
      This is how Tamara, Victoria and Desirée join the crusade of fighting for the possibility of name change in Venezuela, which laws doesn’t protect in any way transgender people. Through a series of legal actions and tireless activism for equality, these women will test the willingness of Venezuelan institutions to ensure the basic right of its citizens: the right to identity.
