SOME REASONS FOR LIVING

 
 

SYNOPSIS:


A heartfelt and passionate documentary examining the day-to-day struggles in the lives of two transgender Latina women. The film looks at their relationship and kinship constructions through their conversations on love, work and life. At the core of it all, is a sad reality that these two women have to accept and address. The reality is that our society treats them as if they were less of human beings. Because of their gender identity, they are more likely to become victims of a hate crime than any other minority group.
