Marianna has made a dramatic choice between life in harmony with her identity and staying with her family. Preparing for gender reassignment, she had to leave her home and, following the Polish law, sue her parents in court. During rehearsals for a theatre play inspired by Marianna’s story the protagonist must face the difficult experiences from the time of her marriage once again.
