Elda and the Monsters.

In her desire and ambition to become a powerful glam rock star, Elda comes into conflict with her shy alter ego Diego, with whom she shares the same body. A pilgrimage to the altar of a trans woman, who was murdered and buried in the middle of a forest, awakens in Elda new ways of loving, growing and bonding, in connection with nature and beyond the limitations of binaries.
