Synopsis

A bawdy drama about a devoted mother whose 18-year-old son is killed by a car while he chases an actress, seeking an autograph. Devastated, the mother returns to the theater where she and her son saw the play the night of his death. There she becomes acquainted with the play’s star, the woman her son had fixated on. Soon, she is working for the woman while searching for the father who never knew their son. She enters a seedy world of transsexuals, prostitutes and drug addicts in order to find the father, who is now a drag queen. Spanish with subtitles.
