How do trans and non-binary people live in a world that is used to two separate genders? A multi-portrait film with autobiographical segments points out how people who define themselves outside these social boundaries are forced to constantly fight for their place in society. For example, how much do clothing and fashion shape our ideas about the body and gender? The film shows how important it is for us to learn to think differently in order to be able to understand not only the situation in which trans and non-binary people find themselves, but in which we find ourselves as a society, bound by certain, narrowly defined concepts, as well. The film encourages us to think whether gender is really linked to some "natural" categories and also the way we have defined it socially. Regardless of the differences and barriers we put up between each other, we are all human after all.
