Just when it appears that Marina, a Santiago-based transgender bar singer, has gotten her life on track, her partner, 50-something divorcé Orlando, collapses in the middle of the night. She hurries him to hospital but leaves as quickly as possible before the arrival of the transphobic authorities, and worse than them – of Orlando’s family, which is entirely unaware of Marina’s existence.

If you missed this excellent film during its commercial run, now is your chance.
