Naples and its crazy, bitter reality. Pretty transsexual Desiderio falls head-over-heels in love with Andrea, a gorgeous guy who runs a car wash, and dreams of being able to completely change her life to live with him. Reality, however, throws many obstacles in Desiderio’s path: her parents refuse to accept her and Andrea is engaged to another girl. She finds consolation in a group of transsexual friends, Massimino, Europa, Suegno and Vera Vuman, who are planning to move away from the city to open an organic farm and drop-in centre for men in crisis at the foot of Vesuvius. A love for nature combined with their ability to listen. A universal story of dignity and social redemption, where events tragically represent the inevitable nature of destiny which will change Desiderio’s life and that of all her friends…
