Mabel, a singer, returns to her hometown Juchitan in the South of Mexico, where traditionally many transsexuals, known as muxe, live. She’s looking for the murderer of her friend Daniela, a muxe like herself, who was killed after receiving 27 stab wounds in the back. For Mabel, the search becomes a journey into a past full of nostalgia and painful memories as she revisits a dark world of betrayal. Carmin Tropical is a poetic transgender drama with the plot of a tense thriller.
