Journalism student Valeria is in for the adventure of a lifetime when she meets and instantly bonds with her idol, the incomparable trans icon Cristina “La Veneno” Ortiz Rodríguez. As she begins to write Cristina’s memoir, Valeria is plunged into a winding story full of victory and tragedy, friendship and heartbreak, loyalty and abuse, fame and freefall - but always defined by courage and self-love. Electrifying and inspiring, Veneno weaves between Cristina’s past and present to paint an unforgettable portrait of a complex woman who, in daring to break boundaries and refusing to dim her own light, paved the way for so many others to shine.
