Samantha Hudson has more than 140,000 followers on Instagram, is the queen of the Madrid nightlife, has been the campaign image of brands like Jean-Paul Gautier, has acted in national series and has even participated in the gala of the last edition of the Feroz awards. But this film does not talk about any of this. It talks about her origins. I'm a faggot and I like Jesus Christ. So begins the first song of the iconoclast Samantha Hudson. She was a high school icon and now she's an Instagram icon. Aspiring actress, improvised showman and queer icon, she tours Spain doing gigs and, above all, continues to project her unprejudiced and vindictive image on the networks. Many admire her, others hate her, but she leaves no one indifferent. Behind the mask, the skin. Behind the character, the person. And the documentary reflects that bipolarity, that duality that exists between her real life and the one she systematically projects on the networks. Like any of us.
