Everybody wants to know if she is a man, woman or transgender. On the eve of her transition, Jordy wonders in a poetical vision if she will ever be able to escape the persistent narrow-mindedness.
Jordy is on the threshold of her physical transition to Jody. Especially now, wandering between male and female, she is aware how everybody watches her and wants to know who she really is. Can she just be herself or will she rebound and embrace all the clichés of the female tribe? In a dreamlike vision, she walks across a modern fairytale landschape, in a poetical act of resistance against the persistent narrow-mindedness she is confronted with in the real world.
