Sera (Sarah Jorge Leôn) is to marry an influential senator (Frank Perozo) for her father's business's sake, and she's dead unhappy about it. So she goes out to a burlesque club in a slutty dress and tries to pick up poet Renato (Richarson Diaz), and when he proves to be unresponsive to her charms, she kidnaps him at gunpoint and tries to make him have sex with her. When he tries to make an escape though, she stabs him to death and throws him off the balcony. Inspector Pérez (Félix Germán) investigates the case, but is soon enough told by his superiors to give up investigations and rule Renato's death a suicide - due obviously to the senator's connections. But Renato was the boyfriend of his estranged daughter's (Judith Rodriguez Perez) best friend Lubrini (Cesar Dominguez), so he makes an effort to find out the truth to get back into her good favor - until he's paid a certain sum he couldn't ignore in hush money. That leaves Lubrini, a drag performer at the very burlesque club Sera has first met Renato at, being the only one to try to find out what has happened - while at the same time struggling to make ends meet as Renato has left him quite a hefty debt ...


A quite impressive movie that, despite having all the hallmarks of a murder mystery, works more as social commentary and thus as quite a bitter portrayal of the corruption in its country of origin - and it works quite well at that thanks to a clever script that's entertaining throughout and that takes its genre seriously even if not coming across as strictly a genre movie. On top of that, the direction is stylistic and full of imaginative, sometimes even surreal imagery, but leaves enough room to breathe for the solid ensemble cast, all of which is making this one fine piece of intelligent entertainment.
