A birthday treat turns into heart-rending tragedy for single mother Manuela when her teenage son is killed in a car accident after a performance of 'A streetcar named desire' starring his favourite actress Huma Roja. Determined to exorcise her overwhelming guilt, Manuela goes to Barcelona to finally tell his father about the son he never knew he had. There, the reason why she has kept the identity of her forbidden lover a secret for so long is revealed. He is a transvestite named Lola who is dying from an AIDS related illness. However, in confronting her own past, Manuela forges a new future with Lola's transsexual best friend Agrado, church social worker Sister Rosa and Huma when her play comes to town.
