For 11-year-old Emma, life appears to be completely uneventful until her dad, Thomas, decides to transition and live as a woman. Thomas becomes Agnete, and the pair must carefully renegotiate their relationship to nurture the closeness and deep love they always shared.
Debut feature film director, Malou Reymann, inspired by her own childhood, says: "It's very true to how I experienced it back then... There was a sense of sorrow, sure, but also humour, a sense of love and loss - experienced at the exact same time." Using re-created home videos, and a terrific cast, Reymann beautifully captures a family working its way through a unique situation and finding themselves in the process.
