Director: Evangelia Kranioti
Screenplay: Evangelia Kranioti
Editor: Yorgos Lamprinos
Starring: Laura Muniz
Producer: Evangelia Kranioti


A documentary-fiction about the dizzying heights of gender and metamorphosis. It is also a cinematographic homage to a land of extremes and the city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Following the path of iconic transgender figure Luana Muniz (1961-2017), the film explores different quests for the self through transvestism, sensual and political struggle. In turn, it asks questions about the desire for transformation of the body, both intimate and social.
