To Die Like a Man

João Pedro Rodrigues

To Die Like a Man is a melodramatic story of Tonia—a middle-aged transsexual woman, who watches the world around her crumble. Her status of a drag show star is threatened by younger women, her boyfriend Rosário pressures her to finally undergo the sex change operation, even though he knows she will always be a man in front of God, and her son whom she abandoned when he was a child, returns full of hatred.
