Marianna is an attractive 40-year-old woman who has just sued her parents in order to obtain a sex change. Alienated by her mother and neglecting her best friends, she seeks asylum in a theatre group, where she comes to make sense of her situation by rehearsing a play based on her past. When the time for the operation looms over her, Marianna kindles an unlikely romance with an older gentleman who offers her a ray of hope, but she remains confronted with the idea of losing what she holds dearest to her – her family – and she must face the chilling reminder of the sacrifices one takes to be themselves.
