Synopsis
Born in Melilla inside a military family, he had to behave as a daughter to make up for being an only son, the artist jokes. She talks about her childhood, her parents, her grandparents, how did her family accept her lifestyle in a prejudiced society (and even more, in a military-based tradition family) She talks about her playgrounds, the relationship with her posse, soccer, dolls... how she enjoyed dressing as a woman, her dreams... At 17, she decides to leave home and starts performing on stages as a transvestite. She started performing during Franco’s dictatorship, when censorship only allowed transvestite shows with trousers under the dress, to justify that the performance was a grotesque joke, or else you could be put under arrest. Despite that, Sandra was arrested, since the authorities considered that acting dressed as a woman was not a job. When she had to make the military service, lasting for almost a month, Sandra tells that she wore the cap Garbo style. Even though her superiors made her to wear it correctly, she constantly tilted it to the side. She had to stand all kinds of repression and scorn. She talks about her arrival to Madrid and her very first performances in the city. She also narrates how she lived the political changes after Franco’s death and after the Movida. The documentary, structured as a cabaret, inserts some of Sandra’s performances, showing her relationship with the audience, her jokes, her songs...

Sandra, nombre artístico; Luis, nombre real. Mujer y hombre, cómo conviven los dos en una misma persona, dónde comienza uno y termina el otro, cuándo se unen y se separan. Sandra lleva encima de los escenarios más de 20 años imitando a gran cantidad de artistas, entre ellas, su gran recreación, Sara Montiel, añadiendo a la vez su propia calidad artística y humana. El documental refleja los cambios producidos en el mundo de la transexualidad en España a lo largo de los años a través de la mirada de la artista, y cómo han influido en su forma de vida y personalidad. Un reflejo de la realidad transexual, del pasado y del presente, un recuerdo evocador de su propia historia personal que nos hará revivir el pasado más cercano de nuestra historia hasta nuestros días.
