In Cordoba, far away from Argentina's capital city, the end of a military regime promises a spring that doesn't last long. “La Delpi” is the sole survivor of a group of friends integrated by transgender women and drag queens, who began to die of AIDS in the late 80's. In a Catholic and conservative city, the "Kalas Group" made their weapons and trenches out of improvised dresses and playbacks. Today the images from a unique and unknown footage are not only a farewell letter, but also a friendship manifesto.
