Marina is a waitress and aspiring singer. Orlando is 20 years older than her, and a business owner. They are in love and planning for the future. One evening, Orlando falls ill. Marina rushes him to hospital, but he passes away soon after arriving. Instead of being able to mourn her lover, Marina is treated with suspicion. A detective investigates Marina’s possible involvement in his death. Orlando’s ex-wife forbids her from attending the funeral, and his son threatens to throw her out of the flat she shared with Orlando. Marina is a trans woman and for most of Orlando’s family, her sexual identity is abnormal. So Marina struggles for the right to be herself, battling the same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now – a complex, strong, forthright and fantastic woman.
