The Golden Camera award of the Cannes Film Festival for the best debut feature film about a transgender teenage girl's quest to become a professional ballerina

A story of 15-year-old Lara who wants to become a ballerina, with a classical training for female dancers. Lara is accepted in a Belgian dance academy  and now her dream seems closer than ever. But there is one problem: Lara was born into the body of a boy. A body that she will push to its limits in order for her to succeed. The rigors of training as a ballerina are further complicated as Lara prepares for sex reassignment surgery.
