Synopsis: The film tells the story of the transsexual Elvira in Frankfurt, who has changed sex out of love for a man, one of the most powerful brothel owners in the city. During her final days, she wanders through the nightmarish city and recapitulates her life: her childhood in a nunnery, her job at a slaughterhouse, her unhappy marriage. One of Fassbinder’s most despairing and radical films.
