RitaPlayThe Rita Hayworth of this Generation is the story of Carmelita Cristina Rivera, a queer Latina performer, who is ready to premier her show, an homage to Rita Hayworth, in a seedy Las Vegas nightclub.  She feels this will make her a star, but enter the Transgender Playboy, Jesus Antonio Gitano.  Camelita falls for Jesus and enters a world of magical realism where dead Hollywood Movie Stars collide with the living.
