Film Details;
This documentary began as a film on transgender women seeking political asylum in the U.S. but developed into a story that exposes transphobia and celebrates the strength of human survival. Three transgender Mexican immigrants navigate different stages of asylum in Los Angeles—all striving to establish stability and support systems in a foreign city.
