Overview

A fictional story serves as the foundation of this pseudo-documentary concerning a Filipina lady-boy prostitute who longs to explore Paris and find a successful soul mate who can make all of her wildest dreams come true. Raquela Rios is a transsexual prostitute who serves a discerning clientele in Cebu City. But Philippine Manila is a long way from the City of Lights, and in order to earn the cash needed to fund her trip, Raquela enters into the lucrative world of Internet pornography. With a little help from an Icelandic friend and a wealthy American web-porn entrepreneur, Raquela may even raise enough money to realize her goal of becoming a real woman. But while it often feels as if the odds are stacked against her, this infectiously optimistic lady-boy knows that it won't be long before she's wandering the streets of Paris with the one man who accepts her unconditionally, and loves her for who she really is.
