Demure Ale makes a living collecting and recycling rubbish in Villa Rosa, a shantytown of gay and trans people on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. One day, she finds the diary of Mía, a woman who committed suicide. Compelled by her story, Ale becomes determined to find the young daughter Mía left behind and to return the diary. Though the initial encounter with the girl and her grief-stricken father is rocky, Ale and the daughter form a secret friendship. Featuring a luminous performance by Camila Sosa Villada as Ale, this is a heartwarming, gentle, and deeply moving drama about the healing power of love.

La película cuenta la historia de Ale (Camila Sosa Villada), una travesti que trabaja como cartonera y vive en una villa miseria conocida como la Aldea Rosa.
