Marianna is an attractive 40-year-old woman who has just sued her parents in order to obtain a sex change. Confronted with the idea of losing what she holds dearest, her family, she must face the chilling reminder of the sacrifices one takes to be themselves. Karolina Bielawska's film about freedom as the supreme value is made with a great sensitivity and vast emotional depth.
