After the sudden death of her partner, Orlando, Marina (Daniela Vega), a young trans woman, is treated with suspicion by Orlando’s family, doctors, and the local police. Orlando’s ex-wife forbids Marina from attending the funeral, and Orlando’s son threatens to throw Marina out of the flat she shared with Orlando. Orlando’s family can only see Marina’s gender identity as an aberration, a perversion. Marina simply wants to grieve the man she loved and who loved her back. Doing so will require all of Marina’s strength and resilience.

Directed by: Sebastián Lelio Starring: Daniela Vega and Francisco Reyes

A Fantastic Woman opens in New York on February 2nd.
