This feature revolves around three trans writers: Naty Menstrual (fiction writer), Susy Shock (musician/poet), and Marlene Wayar (social psychologist/activist/journalist) and the broader community around them. They belong to a generation of trans ("travesti" in Spanish) activism that has pushed a bill on Gender Identity that allows people to change their gender identity based on how they feel, regardless of whether they are on hormone treatment or had any surgeries, defining gender identity as a matter of self-perception. The documentary is not about the new law though, but about the role of the arts in the process of change that is taking place in Argentina. 
 
This project begun as an academic research that recieved the support of a Tinker Foundation Travel Grant in 2012, through CLACS (Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies) at NYU (New York University).
