At the tender age of twelve, Roberto supported the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua and fought for education and social reforms. She was to continue her political struggle fighting alongside the communist Tupamaros in Uruguay. Thirty years later she is struggling to live her life as a woman named Stephanía and striving to be accepted by both society and her family. Documentary filmmaker Aldo Garay has followed Stephanía for twenty years. El Hombre Nuevo provides a personal and tender portrait of a woman who can look back on a tempestuous life in which violence, drugs, prostitution and political commitment all found their place. Scenes from her day-to-day life are interspersed with interview material that includes conversations with old friends, fellow-travellers and siblings, as well as a passionate, heated exchange with her mother. The picture of society that emerges in THE NEW MAN is as diverse as it is intimate, and spans a time of great political upheaval in the 1970s to the present day.
