“It may be a timely film, but it is its timelessness, as well as its depths of compassion, that qualify it as a great one.” ★★★★★ – The Guardian

Winner of the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

Chilean director Lelio follows up his 2013 critical hit Gloria with another luminous portrait of an isolated woman. Here he has created an exquisitely compassionate portrait of the everyday obstacles of transgender existence.

Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer, her partner, Orlando is 20 years older than her and owns a printing company. When he suffers a terrible accident, she comes under suspicion. By virtue of her gender identity she is treated like a criminal, with everyone from the doctors and Orlando’s family to the police seeing not a grieving woman, but an aberration.
