    • Synopsis
    • Four transgender people share stories of their lives and what it feels like to live in an alien body, as an alien in society and in a family. The film captured a small period of their lives during the filming, the experience of going through the legal process of changing gender, which required attending a government commission consisting of officials completely unrelated to the gender topic, the anxiety it caused. These four stories flow into one narrative about xenophobia, violence and loneliness. Besides transgender people, local LGBT activists and Belarus’ government chief sexologist were interviewed. Not every character’s story has a “happy end”, but all of them managed to find support of friends, all of them “have a dream” and never lose hope.
