Synopsis

Ariel is a young dressmaker who, after a failed sexual encounter, discovers a secret her family has tried to hide all of her life: she was born with ambiguous genitals and being a baby, she was submitted to several surgeries to turn her into a woman. She now has one of two choices: she can either keep living as a socially accepted but oppressed person or choose to be free and live her life as an intersexual person and face society’s “moral” judgement.

Ariel es una joven modista que, después de un encuentro sexual fallido, descubre un secreto que su familia ha intentado ocultar toda su vida: nació con genitales ambiguos y, siendo bebé, fue sometida a varias cirugías para convertirla en mujer. Ahora tiene una de dos opciones: seguir viviendo como una persona socialmente aceptada pero oprimida o elegir ser libre y vivir su vida como una persona intersexual y enfrentar el juicio “”moral”” de la sociedad.
