"Marina, a twenty-something waitress and aspiring singer, is in a loving relationship with older partner Orlando despite the difference in their ages. When Orlando unexpectedly dies, Marina, who is transgender, faces discrimination and hostility from both Orlando's family and government officials while also contending with her devastating grief." (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences)

"To say that Vega is marvelous in her portrayal of Marina is nothing short of an understatement. She’s an inspiration to transgender and non-binary people across the globe, all while delivering the performance of a lifetime." - Danielle Solzman (Consequence of Sound)
