Jacqueline Rocha Côrtes is a Brazilian transexual woman who has been living with AIDS for the past 21 years. As a Human Rights activist and a militant for HIV-positive people, Jacque has had her life marked by struggles and achievements, including her role as a representative of the Brazilian government at the United Nations. Now married and a mother of two, Jacque lives in a small town, leading her life dedicated to motherhood and family. By tracking her daily reality and revisiting her story, the film addresses the diversity and shows the numerous challenges that have been disrupted by this extraordinary character, raising awareness on prejudice, homolesbotransphobia and gender identity.
