Synopsis

Set against a backdrop of current day violence and injustice faced by trans women in the USA, this documentary-cum-whodunit follows one woman’s determined attempt to establish the truth behind the death of the trans icon and Gay rights activist Martha P Johnson.


This many layered documentary following Victoria Cruz’s investigation, is woven together with fascinating archive footage and interviews from elders and activists from that period, including fellow revolutionary Sylvia Rivera.


Oscar-nominated director David France (How to Survive a Plague) has produced a lovingly made tribute to our elders who paved the way and created of the Global Pride movement that we enjoy today and vital historic document on the political legacy of one of the biggest queer heroes.
