15-year-old Lara dreams of becoming a professional ballerina. With the support of her father, she throws herself into this quest for the absolute at a new school. But Lara’s adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she realises her body does not bend so easily to the strict discipline because she was born a boy. Facing a world that questions her gender and selfhood, whilst taking on the intense physical demands of a dancer's life.

Based on a real-life story, Belgian director Lukas Dhont's Cannes prize-winning film brings trans experiences to the fore with a coming-of-age story that explores the psychological and physical journey of transitioning from adolescent to adult.
