When a trans sister, January Marie Lapuz, is brutally murdered in her own home, a community reacts. Her friends and other trans women of colour come to voice their issues, concerns, and challenges. This is the story of January, a friend, a daughter, a person who was seen as a bright light in the lives of many.

This moving tribute is available on DVD or Blu-ray and includes a discussion guide. It will not only bring justice to January, but to all the women who have lost their lives. January had a beautiful soul, and now part of her soul rests in each and every one of us.
