SYNOPSIS

Chris feels neither a man nor a woman, but more like a "Two-Spirit": in between both genders. Now turning sixty, this professor of management is taking the big plunge. The film takes place over one year in Chris’s life, from an operation in Thailand, the “apprenticeship” of femininity back in Switzerland, to the coming out as a woman. This is the year in which Chris takes wing as a female to become Christa.
