Synopsis

Kike, deeply hurt by a past relationship and appalled by the thought of sex, receives the visit of the spirit of a drag queen.  This unexpected apparition unleashes a series of events that take Kike on a total transformation.  And so, with an almost new cult, total sexual abstinence and high hopes Kike begins a journey that makes him restore his faith in love and changes the lives of everyone around him.
