Four years ago the Chilene Sebastián Lelio inspired GLORIA. This year, he was once again a highlight in the competition of the Berlinale: the centerpiece of his outstanding film is a woman who was once a man and is now trying to lead a normal life: Marina, a young transsexual from Santiago de Chile, works during the day as a waitress and later as a singer in a nightclub. She has a relationship with Orlando, a few years older, with whom she plans a common future. But when Orlando dies after a heartfelt night of a heart attack, Marina has to face not only the skeptical looks of Orlando's family, but also the annoying questions of a commissioner. Suddenly, she has to cope alone with everyday discrimination and hostility.

Lelio and his co-author Gonzalo Maza were awarded the silver bear at the Berlinale for the best screenplay.
