Tino hopes his dream of becoming a “Muxe Queen” will come true. As a homosexual child, he struggles to resolve his past and overcome his poverty. This is the intimate journey to the heart of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, Oaxaca, where there exists a third gender identity, neither male nor female, but a Muxe (a Zapotec homosexual). The region is known for the strength of its women and this “magical town” – lost in the wild heel of Mexico – seeks a free and diverse society dominated by femininity – courageous women, and men dressed as women.
