The Night Flowers

In a small and conservative indigenous village on the shores of Mexico’s largest lake, live a group of transgender youth - the self-ascribed “Night Flowers” - who struggle to uphold their gender identity every day. As each of them confronts their insecurities and fears head-on, within their oppressive environment - and their notion of freedom becomes more complicated - their strong bond will generate in them a sense of identity that they have yet to find within their own town.
