This video edited initially in a 48 hour turnaround became a fundraiser and helped save a human being. The story is of a Mexican transsexual woman's struggle to immigrate to Canada, in order to live her life with dignity and be with those she loves. This video has been described as instramental in helping to secure her safe passage back to Canada. The video became the first piece from within the trans community to be screened at a heterosexual festival, Rights On Reel 1999.
