Lima, Peru. Darkness.
Makuti, a middle-aged single mother is desperately searching for her nineteen-year-old daughter Mía who left home to work on the streets. Makuti and her daughter are no ordinary women: they are transsexuals and their language is known as Loxoro. This film tells the story of a search that crosses boundaries into a remote and unknown world where the unfamiliar is the familiar.
