TILL THE END OF THE NIGHT
In order to gain the trust of a drug dealer Victor, undercover cop Robert has to pretend to be lover of a transgender person Leni. The police hope her ties with the felon will help to infiltrate the organization. However, while this part of the plan works relatively smoothly, their now fake relationship used to be a real and emotional one, before Leni’s transition. The irony is that it is Victor the one who will make Robert confront his conflicting feelings of love.
