Lara is 15 and has a dream: she wants to be a ballet dancer. When she is accepted at a renowned academy, she moves to Brussels with her father and her little brother. Meanwhile, Lara tries to win another fight: she wants to undergo a sex change. Outwardly, she is already a girl, but her body is still that of a boy. Her father supports her in throughout, as do the psychologists and doctors. But the pressure on the young ballerina to perform is enormous and Lara is repeatedly thrown by her classmates into the challenges of puberty. The exhausting training finally pushes Lara to self-harm, which in turn puts her operation on the line. Her two big dreams seem, increasingly, to contradict each other.
