Compelling drama about a trans woman fighting to clear her name after her lover’s death, winner of Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Academy Awards.

Subtitled

Marina and Orlando are in love and planning for the future. Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer. Orlando is 20 years older than her, and owns a printing company. After celebrating Marina's birthday one evening, Orlando falls seriously ill. Marina rushes him to the emergency room, but he passes away just after arriving at the hospital.

Marina is a trans woman and for most of Orlando's family, her sexual identity is an aberration, a perversion. Instead of being able to mourn her lover, suddenly she is treated with suspicion. The doctors and Orlando's family don't trust her. A woman detective investigates Marina to see if she was involved in his death. Orlando's ex-wife forbids her from attending the funeral. And to make matters worse, Orlando's son threatens to throw Marina out of the flat she shared with Orlando. So Marina struggles for the right to be herself. She battles the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now - a complex, strong, forthright and fantastic woman.

“An accomplished and deeply moving film, gloriously rendered with shifting harmonies, gusto, poise and heartfelt emotion” Sight & Sound

“An exquisite melodrama about the extremes of love and grief and familial conflict that also, when you're least expecting it, packs a hefty political wallop” The Times
