NARRATIVE CENTERPIECE!

**Director Flavio Alves and actor Ivana Black are scheduled to attend the screening.**

Tina (Carlie Guevara), a young Mexican trans woman, and Eliana (Miriam Cruz), her grandmother, navigate Tina’s transition and struggle to build a life for themselves as undocumented immigrants in New York City in this hard-hitting drama that fans of Ryan Murphy’s POSE will take to their hearts. As Tina begins the process of transitioning, Eliana struggles to understand and fears that their life together in America will be threatened. For a while Tina finds camaraderie in a small but mighty transgender advocate group, but soon, Tina finds herself having to fight for the life that she’s dreamed of – facing violence, insurmountable medical costs, questions about her legal status, and increasing skepticism from the man she loves. Will Tina be the one to beat the odds? Carlie Guevara is stunning in her debut role, ably supported by veteran actors Ed Asner, Michael Madsen and Miriam Cruz as the sweet but spirited grandmother.
