Die Beautiful

Trisha, a Filipino transgender woman suddenly dies while being crowned in a beauty pageant. Her last wish is to be presented as a different celebrity on each night of her wake, but her father wants to bury her as a man. Trisha’s friends are left with no choice but to steal her body and hold the wake in a secret location. And as Trisha is transformed to look like different celebrities, they also look back at the colorful and extraordinary life that she has led — from being a son, a sister, a mother, a friend, a lover, a wife and ultimately, a queen.
