Outfest alum Adrián Silvestre partners with co-writer and lead actress Raphaëlle Perez to create a colorful, layered portrait of a life in flux. Perez plays Raphi, a low-level office worker with dreams of being an artist. When Raphi is diagnosed with gender dysphoria, her story becomes a deeply humane exploration of the choices one trans woman makes as she learns to re-enter the dating world, demand more from her sex life, and come into her own as a gifted writer and performer. Bursting with vitality and exuberance, the community that forms around Raphi is inspirational, led by a support group of multigenerational trans women played by the subjects of Silvestre’s Outfest Award-winning documentary Sediments. This is an invigorating cinematic experience, destined to become a queer classic.
