Synopsis

During Argentina’s civil-military dictatorship in the 70s and 80s, the LGBTQIA+ community was persecuted and disappeared. In this context, transvestites, dykes, faggots and other monsters of all stripes weaved strategies of flirtation in Buenos Aires’s teapots to free themselves and clandestine parties in the Delta’s Tigre to survive.
