SYNOPSIS

45 year-old María Luisa lives in a staunchly catholic village in the Colombian mountains. She was born male, however, she identifies herself as a woman, behaves and dresses like one. Shunned from birth, she has found in her love for animals and her faith, a way of dealing with a world that has done nothing but despise her. Standing tall and proud, there is nothing powerful enough to wipe her smile away.

Ambassadors of the film: Judit Marjai ( event planner), Ági Panda ( sociologist, plus size model)
