Stephania is a transsexual woman born in Nicaragua. As a boy, he was adopted by a couple of Uruguayan leftist activists in the midst of the Sandinista revolution. He was once a committed and revolutionary young boy; today, 26 years later and after overcoming his drug addiction and leaving prostitution, she earns a living watching cars in downtown Montevideo. The film follows Stephania in her journey to rediscover her home country, where she was once a son, a brother and a boy who taught literacy and where she now wants to be accepted as the woman she is. Stephania and the movie director have known each other for 20 years.
