The Amazing Truth About Queen Raquela
A naive but street-smart Filipina transsexual prostitute named Raquela decides to travel in order to find her prince charming. Like many ladyboys in the Philippines, Raquela dreams of marrying a man from the West. She spends much of her time on the internet looking for men who can come and rescue her. They promise to come and time after time Raquela gets stood up at the airport but never loses hope. Her life changes when, by luck, she lands a job as a webcam host on a porn site. The owner of the website, Michael, a "Ladyboy specialist" who runs his business from New York, promises to help Raquela. Through the internet, Raquela makes many interesting friends; among them is Valery in Iceland, who's looking to help someone like herself. Through her friends in the internet world, Raquela eventually gets her dream opportunity to travel far away on her quest to find the man of her dreams and to visit Paris.
