Director Sebastián Lelio confirms his talent for bringing insight and sensitivity to the lives of complex female characters. Marina (Daniela Vega) is planning her future with lover Orlando (Francisco Reyes) when he tragically falls ill and dies. Her world shatters, but the fact that she is transgender adds immeasurably to her ordeal. Staff from the hospital, Orlando’s former wife, and his vindictive son, all challenge her right to grieve. They question the nature of Marina and Orlando’s relationship and crush her with endless indignities. Marina’s defiant resistance makes for rousing, wrenching cinema.

Specially commissioned programme notes are available here.
