The Struggle for Justice

Kenya witnesses her friend Paola being murdered by a client. When the murderer is released, Kenya embarks on a lengthy battle for justice, backed up by her “sisters.” Trans women face extreme violence in Mexico City, and sex workers are even more vulnerable. This raw and deeply affecting portrait of Kenya gives an insider’s view of the impact that violence has on the community, and how complex life is for them. Kenya works to set up a safe haven for all her girlfriends, but deep inside she is scared of a lonely or tragic end for herself.
