Synopsis

In the middle of the conservative city of Córdoba (Argentina) in the late 80s, the Grupo Kalas, made up of transvestites and drag queens, is getting ready around a stage. Following one genocide, the dictatorship's, comes another: the AIDS crisis and the retroviral drugs that never make it beyond the capital city. "So let's pretend that he is La Gallega" says its narrator La Delpi, and thus does this essay take shape, combining archive with shot footage, desired and dreamed images that revive the stolen past of an infinite friendship. They might just make it into a possibility for the future. (LS)
