Dyke (Bollo)

Raw, ironic, direct and full of humor.

Nat is a waitress at Queers, a famous bar in Chueca, Madrid. After several years in an open relationship with Ratja, she discovers that she is HIV positive. As she begins antiretroviral therapy and enters a women’s support group, she must manage her new situation with past and present lovers.

Thus, amongst Nat’s past lovers, we find great characters such as Rakel, who is in charge of fighting against sexual exploitation in Morocco; Sara, who was forcibly admitted to a conversion therapy clinic; or Mayca, a nurse who reflects on the few options lesbian women have to prevent sexually transmitted infections.
