This is documentary-fiction about the dizzying heights of gender and metamorphosis, and it is also a
cinematographic hommage to a land of extremes: the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Following the path of iconic transgender figure Luana Muniz (1961-2017), the film explores different quests for the self through transvestism, carnaval and political struggle. In turn, it asks questions about the desire for transformation of the body, both intimate and social. Shown at the Panorama sidebar of the Berlin Film Festival 2018.
