Tiresia, a stunningly beautiful Brazilian transsexual, lives illegally with her brother on the outskirts of Paris. Terranova, an aesthete with a poetic mind, likens her to the perfect rose and kidnaps her to keep as his own. Deprived of her daily hormones, Tiresia gradually transforms before his eyes. Powerless before his rose's transformation, Terranova blinds her and dumps her on the edge of a neighbouring suburb. In a pitiful state, Tiresia, now half-woman, half-man, is taken in and cared for by Anna, a simple, uncultivated girl. While recuperating, Tiresia develops the gift of premonition. But the presence of an oracle does not sit well with the Church. The parish priest has no choice but to confront Tiresia.
