The film, which is scheduled to shoot in 2018, tells a story of a 17-years-old rebellious transgender boy, who spends his last few months living with his family (father, mother and 8-years-old sister Sara), constantly fighting until the moment when his father’s intolerance and his teenage outbursts become insurmountable and the family splits apart.
The film is primarily intended for younger audiences (15+) and its budget is estimated for 1.5 m EUR. The development of the project has been supported by Creative Europe – MEDIA and the Slovenian Film Center.
The film will be distributed by Cinemania Group. No sales agent is attached so far.
