Deniz is a trans woman working as a sex laborer in Mersin. She was a victim of a hate attack by a group of people. She was injured seriously and her leg was broken. In the meantime she also struggles for survival and for her rights together with an LGBTI activist group, “7 Colors”. They know that one of the ways of defeating hate is to exist in daily life more and more, and thus be accepted by society.
