Introduction

Portuguese provocateur João Pedro Rodrigues (O Fantasma, The Ornithologist) tells the melancholic tale of Tonia, a disillusioned drag performer lamenting the disappointments in her life.

Laced with surrealist touches and a mischievous streak of dry humour, Rodrigues’ otherworldly melodrama is a richly rewarding study of heartache and the painful process of self-discovery.
