Lara, a teenager, is in the process of making the transition from male to female. Lara has a dream of becoming a ballerina. She is accepted by a prestigious dance academy but there are no secrets here: students and faculty know who she is and who she’s been. Lara is impatient with the medical process, which leaves her headed to her destination at a pace not to her liking. She is hard on the body she so badly wishes to change, pushing herself on the dance floor and harming herself off it.
