This last one was about a disturbed transgender looking for her long lost father back in the 80's. Lucas is always very curious to study marginalized social groups as part of his research as creator. He believes film may be the perfect media to immerse a society thirsty for catharsis in a fictional world that explores gritty and harsh social realities from the real world in order to educate while entertaining the crowds in that ‘fantasy’ world”.
