A delicate and moving take on gender identity.

Today is the big day for Nina. The day she stops hiding and tells everybody she no longer identifies with Niklas and will never be a boy again. Nina doesn’t know that this decision will profoundly shake her family, the neighborhood, and the well-trimmed gardens of their perfect suburb.

By turns extremely moving and funny, Karin Heberlein’s second feature tackles a subject that has yet to be tackled in the cinema and is a good complement to Sébastien Lifshitz’s documentary Petite Fille (2020). The performers are wildly accurate, providing a gentle, sympathetic approach to the theme of identity and gender transition.
