Marianna is an attractive, 40-years old woman. She decided to leave her wife and children, whom she had loved. She was forced to sue her own parents. She did all that in order to change sex. As it turns out, life has prepared a scenario that couldn’t be foreseen, while the price of freedom and coveted womanhood stays very high.
Andrzej Wajda: “Karolina Bielawska made a movie about freedom which is the highest value in every human’s life with great sensibility. The film’s character fought a moving battle with her environment and she won that battle, despite grave difficulties. The film is daring, not only because of its theme, but also the exceptional protagonist. (…) It is made with great dose of sensitivity and respect for another human being. It’s wonderful that such young directors are able to make films so mature and lively.”
