Disrupted.

The memory and testimony of two characters: Fernando García, known as Pinolito, who was a child actor in the seventies, and Doña Lilia Ortega, his mother, an actress. Fernando came out as a transsexual some years ago, and now calls herself Coral Bonelli. They live together in Garibaldi yearning for their past in the movies, while Coral bravely comes to terms with her gender identity. They both still perform.
