LUKAS DHONT | BELGIUM, NETHERLANDS | 2018 |105 MIN

Determined 15-year-old Lara is committed to becoming a professional ballerina. With the support of her father, she throws herself into this quest for the absolute at a new school. Lara's adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she realizes her body does not bend so easily to the strict discipline because she was born a boy.

Lukas Dhonts astonishing debut feature is a quietly powerful and nuanced trans rite-of-passage story and breathtakingly empathetic tale of a young woman struggling to be at peace in her body.
