Directed by :
Bertrand BONELLO 
Country:
FRANCE
Duration:
118.00 minutes

Synopsis


Tiresia, a Brazilian transsexual of extreme beauty, lives illegally with her
brother in the outskirts of Paris.
Terranova, an aesthete with poetic ideas, likens Tiresia to a perfect rose.
He ends up kidnapping her to keep her as his own. Deprived of her daily hormones,
Tiresia transforms little by little before his eyes.
Powerless before what his rose becomes, Terranova blinds Tiresia and leaves
her for dead in the countryside.
In a pitiful state between woman and man, Tiresia is taken in and cared for
by Anna, a simple young girl. While recuperating, Tiresia discovers a sudden
gift of premonition. But the presence of an oracle disturbs the Church. The
parish priest has no choice but to confront Tiresia.
