Patricia Velasquez, the world’s first openly lesbian supermodel, stars in the Caribbean-set lesbian Spanish-language ensemble romantic drama, Liz in September. The film stars Patricia Velasquez, Mimi Lazo, Eloísa Maturén, Mimi Lazo, Danay Garcia, Elba Escobar, Arlette Torres, and María Luisa Flores.
Every year, Liz (Velasquez), a hardcore womanizer, celebrates her birthday with her friends at a Caribbean beach retreat. This year might be the final celebration as she is terminally ill, a fact she hides. When Eva, a young, emotionally wounded woman and outsider arrives, Liz seduces her. But the ingenue is deeply wounded by the recent death of her young son, and nothing turns out as expected. The encounter between these two opposite women changes their lives, setting new perspectives where love, life, and death, play out as simple steps of nature.
