In the 90's, Laurence confesses his will to become a woman to his girlfriend Fred. Against all comers, and perhaps even against themselves, they fight prejudices from the people around them, they break out of the family sphere of influence, and defy phobias the society suffer from.
For ten years, their attempt to live through this transitional period in which they embark on a unique journey heading to a void.
The film received positive reviews, from both critics and audience. It competed in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival where Suzanne Clément won the Award for Best Actress. At the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, the film won the award for Best Canadian Feature Film.
