"Kelly" is a film about a person who lives in a foreign country and in a foreign body.


Kelly is a Brazilian transgender person who found refuge in an Italian holiday village. While pursuing her childhood dream of becoming a singer and performer, she survives on prostitution and dreams of finding the love of her life with the help of Afro-Brazilian rituals. 


The film is a psychological portrait of a complex and contradictory person who reflects human hopes and dreams in an excessive way.
