Under pressure from Rosário to assume her female identity, the sex change operation that will transform her into a woman, Tonia struggles against her innermost religious convictions. If, on the one hand, she wants to be the woman that Rosário so desires, on the other, she knows that before God she can never be that woman.
Tonia knows that she's ill. Using the excuse of visiting Rosario's' brother, to take him away from the city and the drugs, they travel to the countryside. Lost, they find themselves in an enchanted forest, a magical world where they come across the enigmatic Maria Bakker, who will reveal to Tonia the meaning of life and the secrets of transfiguration.
Back to the city, something sublime seals this story: on one of the first days of spring, death unites two men who love each other, and together they return to the enchanted forest.
