Documentary filmmaker Flavio Florencio follows the journey of Morgana, a transgender opera singer who travels to Bangkok where she will represent Mexico in the Miss International Queen competition. More than anything, she wants to have a sex-change operation, and hopes she will win the title so she will be able to pay for her surgery using the prize money. The documentary embarks on Morgana’s odyssey as she follows her dream of asserting the identity she has been struggling all her life to construct.
There will be a live Zoom Q&A with the film's director, Flavio Florencio, after the screening.
