Suzanna, aged 23, changes gender and becomes a boy: Coby. Her transformation deeply disrupts the lives of all who love her. Ultimately, Coby’s chrysalis morphs into the transformation of a whole family compelled to modify their own perspectives. Not only a physical metamorphosis is at stake here, but also a spiritual one that eventually takes place under the director’s bright, unusual eye.
