International Feature Film Competition

Paloma lives with her boyfriend and seven-year-old daughter in the Brazilian countryside, where she works on a papaya farm. But the locals have no sympathy for their cohabitation. And although the couple have a vibrant sex life, it's not enough for Paloma. She would like to have a church wedding with all the trimmings, just like the other women in the village. However, despite the rejection of the local priest, the constant doubts of her boyfriend and the cruel treatment from the local community, she does not give up and follows her dream. Even if it means turning to the Pope himself! The character of the determined Paloma is portrayed by actress and poet Kika Sena with incredible tenderness and fragility. It is also thanks to her performance that director Marcelo Gomes has succeeded in making a sensitive film about the fulfillment of a trans woman's dream and the price she must pay for what some people take for granted.
