The film tells the story of a determined 15-year-old named Lara, who is committed to becoming a professional ballerina. With the support of her father, she throws herself into making her dream a reality when she enrolls in a dance school. Lara’s adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she realises the limitations that being born into a boy's body imposes on her. Along with the physical difficulties Lara faces, she experiences mental anguish as she tries to succeed in a competitive vocation whilst she transitions. The screening is in partnership with the Government of Flanders and Cinema Galeries in Brussels. 

Lynn Verrydt, Policy Officer on LGBTI+ and Non-discrimination for the Flemish Agency for Local and Provincial Government will introduce the screening.
