Marina and Orlando are in love and planning for the future. Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer. Orlando, 20 years older than her, owns a printing company.
After an evening celebrating Marina'sbirthday, Orlando falls seriously ill. Marina rushes him to the emergency room, but Orlando passes away just after arriving at the hospital.
Instead of being able to mourn her lover, suddenly Marina is under suspicion. Doctors and Orlando's family don't trust her. A woman detective wants to make sure she is not involved in his death. Orlando's ex-wife wants her to stay away from the funeral. Not only that -Marina is threatened byOrlando's adult son to throw her out the flat.
Marina is a transwoman and for most of Orlando's family, her sexual identity is a complete aberration.
So now Marina has to struggle for the right to be herself. She will go through a battle against the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now. A complex, strong, forth right and fantastic woman.
