Casa Roshell

Roshell (51) and Liliana (43) run together Casa Roshell. As an utopic spot, this place is a hideout for those men that live repressed in their desires of feminization and transvestism. A small room with a stage receives their guests with intimacy, among political performances and playbacks. Conversations turn existentialist when frustrations and dreams come out. On duality of the genres and their reality as biological men. On their innate desires and the constant search of identity.
