Synopsis

Lara, a 15 year-old transgender teen, is determined to become a professional ballerina. As she enrols at a prestigious dance academy, she has to adapt to a world of strict discipline, hard work and competition. Simultaneously, she starts a hormone treatment, an important step in her journey to complete her gender transition. While Lara attempts to balance her hopes and fears in her career and personal life, she also wishes to fit in among her classmates and experience love and friendship like any other teenager. Despite the support of her father, younger brother and doctors, Lara’s growing frustration of not seeing her body change fast turns into impatience and despair, and eventually leads her to take extreme action. This coming-of-age tale provides an honest and much-needed view of some of the struggles of adolescence through the experience of trans youth, tackling important aspects of gender identity as well as mental and physical well-being.
