    • Synopsis
    • Mia is the story of Ale, a transvestite who lives in a shanty town inhabited only by
      gays. Ale finds a diary of a young woman who has died. The content written on it,
      makes Ale confront her reality.
      The story deals with the right to be happy and to be part of the community who
      has chosen to live differently from what society deems morally acceptable. It allows
      us to evaluate the issue of discrimination, intolerance, marginalization and social
      exclusion, but also that of the infinite capacity to love nascent in all human beings.
