    Documentary

    Bianca is a 39-year-old transsexual woman. She’s been living in Milan since 2009 and works as a prostitute. For twenty years, she has been involved with Natasha, a Japanese trans who is temporarily living in Brazil. Their bond is very strong and distance has not weakened it. The film is about their love story, made up of long phone calls and even longer waits. Because of reasons related to work and family, they have not seen each other for two years. Bianca’s time without Natasha is marked by her clients, mostly regular ones, and by their requests. Over time, she has grown fond of them, but she always thinks about Natasha, who is finally coming back.
