Heels Over Wheels

The documentary explores the concept of the family within the LGTBQ+ community and bets on defending drag as a collective political act and not as a stigmatized and individualistic art. Luna Diva is the matriarch of this queer family. She broke away from her “real” family when her father tried to have her institutionalized in order to “cure her homosexuality”. Luna has ended up finding a home in Barcelona and has formed her own family from people she has met in the queer and underground world of Barcelona. Together with her non-biological sister, Michelle Relayze, and her goddaughters, Miki Mint and Emma Mess, they will share a trip to Murcia. There they will try show their support for Diego José, a minor who was assaulted outside his school.
