    • Synopsis
    • Determined to not surrender to the homophobia surrounding them, these Philippine (male to female) transsexuals change their appearance to become the "perfect woman." Amidst a beauty contest and sexy choreographies are private confessions, which brings out the rejections, attacks and violence amongst them.

      Philippine-American director Janice Villarosa discovered a world, which, as she admits herself, changed her forever.
