Alejandra's story

 

Alejandra Santiago, an Indigenous, transgender woman from Oaxaca, Mexico escaped violence in her hometown by migrating to the United States. The film finds Alejandra as she prepares for several long-awaited events in her life leading to her very first homecoming trip in 27 years: her gender-confirmation surgery, completing a Business degree, opening her own restaurant and making peace with the Catholic Church.

Alejandra's lifelong quest for a safe place to call home is told through her own composite recollections on how all her intersecting identities and struggles have turned her into a beacon of solidarity for many.
