Documentary : 96' / Politics, Activism, Art & Artists, Trans, Performance, Friendship, VIH-AIDS

The last performance of the cabaret Travesía Travesti coincides with the social outburst in Chile on 18 October 2019. During the uprising, Anastasia struggles to reunite the former members of a fractured cast, but Maraca, her best friend, does not want to continue with the play. Amnesia, filmmaker and last remaining artist in the company, embarks on a cinematic journey through archives and interviews of a group of friends whose historical disputes reveal behind glitter, feathers and beads the complexities of friendship, inheritance and collectivity in this patriarchal system.
