“Fifteen-year-old Lara dreams of becoming a ballerina. Assigned male at birth, Lara has to overcome more than blistered, bloody feet to realize her dream. With remarkable control and sensitivity, Belgian first-time helmer Lukas Dhont brings trans experiences to the fore with a coming-of-age story that explores the psychological and physical journey of transitioning from adolescent to adult” (Toronto International Film Festival program notes).
