In Chile, 1986, a few days before Pinochet's attempted assassination, we witness a love story between "the Queen of the Corner," a middle-aged transgender woman who embroiders tablecloths for military wives, and a young guerrilla member of the Manuel Rodríguez Patriotic Front. Under the Pinochet dictatorship, among gunshots and boleros, a passionate relationship flourishes. 93 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles. 

“It would be easy to describe “My Tender Matador” as a film about a political awakening, but that’s too simplistic.” — Jay Weissberg, Variety
