The film portrays the lives of two gay men and one transgender woman who left their home countries because of discrimination and persecution. Now in South Africa they applied for refugee status on their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Despite the fact that in South Africa both national laws and international human rights laws protects lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) individuals against any form of discrimination. Flavina, Mussa and Junior have encountered several challenges in their new communities.
The film is an emotional personal journey that shows how stigmatization, persecution and violence have turned the protagonists into human rights activists.
