CGiii Comment

Kelly is a Brazilian transsexual who found refuge in a mediterranean holiday village in Italy. She lives on prostitution and desperately looks for the love of her life. Carrying the scars of a harsh past, she keeps pursuing her childhood dream of being a singer and actress.

One day she sees a man in the street and falls in love with the unknown stranger. Too shy to approach him, she seeks for guidance in rituals of the Afro-Brazilian religion Candomblé and transforms her desires into imaginative performances.
Her close friends accompany her, but often disagree with her romantic ideals.

The film is a psychological potrait of a complex and contradictory person who reflects human hopes and dreams in an often exessive way and continues her search for love and fulfillment against all odds.
