Produced & directed by Henrique Cirne Lima & Josué Pellot in 2010, this 75-minute documentary shows the life stories of three transgender women in Chicago's Puerto Rican community.
Family dynamics, cultural heritage and personal identity all play a part in how these trans women face the daily struggle that comes from being true to themselves.
It is an amusing and amazing film for you to appreciate in terms of bravery and passion.
