The title of this filmic and photographic montage aims to push behind the facade of transgendered performance where life looks eccentric, colorful and spectacular! The film takes place in Manila, Philippines amongst a group of transgendered performers who earn a dismal 15Euro per week. The leading voice of Apple explains to us the more intimate realities of the trans lifestyle in the Philippines and the role that performance holds in their lives and identities.
