One man’s death and the other woman’s life

Orlando has left his wife and child to spend the rest of his life with the 20 year younger Marina. This may sound like a familiar story, but when his life abruptly ends, Marina is left with suspicious police officers and Orlando’s less than forgiving family. Complications ensue, and prejudice against Marina as not only the other woman, but also a transgender one, combine to make matters even worse. Featuring a remarkable performance in the lead role by Daniela Vega, A FANTASTIC WOMAN is a complex and highly relevant character study.
