In this award-winning, and fabulous film that crosses boundaries between fiction, nonfiction and re-creation, a group of older trans women - who call themselves Le Favolose (The Fabulous Ones) - reunite after 20 years.
Back at the house where they once lived, they have been summoned not just to reminisce about their younger days but to read a recently discovered letter from their deceased friend Antonia.
After death, many trans women are deprived of their identity; funerals take place in secret, and birth names get engraved on gravestones. That’s what happened to Antonia, too. She was buried in men’s clothes.
Le Favolose play themselves in this combination of documentary and fantasy based on actual events, and find a remarkable way of fulfilling Antonia’s wishes.
