The Iron Ladies

Satree lek

Thailand, 2000
Comedy, Drama, Sport


Recounting how a volleyball team composed of transvestite gays and one transsexual competed in the 1996 national championships, this Thai comedy brings the issue of male effeminacy into a new light — even while entertaining us in the “old” one.
