A young trans woman in Barcelona searches for love, community, and her place in the world


Working at a queer call center in Barcelona after relocating from France, sensitive dreamer Raphi helps others navigate mental health crises as she works through her own challenges, including coming to terms with being a trans woman in a brand new city. Through it all — embarrassing dates, adapting to the rhythms of a new life, candid conversations with queer colleagues — she chases after an elusive image of modern love that continually shifts and surprises her.

With a star-making performance by Raphaëlle Pérez (who also serves as co-writer), this narrative feature debut from NewFest alum Adrián Silvestre (SEDIMENTS) is a romantic and illuminating story of one woman’s transfeminine experience.

Presented in partnership with Spain Arts & Culture and the Consulate General of Spain in New York
