In Paris everyone knows her as 'Mujeron’ (Big Woman) but her real name is Angel. A former boxer from Ecuador, Angel is now a transsexual prostitute in France. Her mission in life is to support her family back home. Now, after five years away, the time has come for her to see what her help has achieved. In her first trip home since she left Ecuador, Angel is confronted with the harsh reality of her country and an ambiguous relationship with her family. Angel is a compelling insight into the complexities of identity and economic struggle in Ecuador. But, above all, it is the touching story of a remarkable individual and her fight for justice and acceptance.
