The film is based upon the real life of Teo, a distinguished, prominent and outstanding lawyer, with a four-year marriage and two small children, who decides to turn his world upside down and accomplish his longtime secret: to change his body and become a woman.  TAMARA graphically depicts both the physical and emotional paths Teo must follow to become Tamara, fighting not only her own doubts, but also the prejudice and contempt of the world around her.  Inspired by the true story of the first politician transgender, Tamara Adrian, who was elected to the National Assembly of Venezuela in the Venezuelan parliamentary election in 2015.
