Courage, individuality, queer family values.

This fictionalised documentary stars the real-life subject of the story playing herself. A self-respecting prostitute is determined to live and love on her own terms, negotiating poverty, homophobia, and an often dangerous working environment, while she builds a loving home.

--A gritty docudrama where sandy barren ochres turn to gold.
