22 years ago twins Isabelle and Denise were born. But already as a kid Isabelle knew she was different from the other girls. Deep down Isabelle always knew that she was a boy, although the others thought he was a girl. The 6 year-old Isabelle already wanted to be a dad when she grew up. A few years later she changed her name to Sam. From then on Sam has been forced to explain who he really is, over and over again. The film follows Sam from childhood to high school graduation. During that time he has undergone surgery to remove his breasts and has been given testosterone injections. Today Sam is a young man, simply trying to find his way in a life that is anything but easy for him.

TALK: Izaro Antxia (responsible for the transsexuality area of Gehitu), Aingeru Mayor (sexologist and president of Chrysallis Euskal Herria)
