Producer: Javier Pérez Santana
Raphi is a young, androgynous and naive. He writes poems about princes and dreams of falling in love. From his native France he moves to Barcelona, where the attempts to maintain relationships with other boys cause him anxiety. At the Gender Unit of Hospital Clínic, Raphi is diagnosed with gender dysphoria.
Raphi begins a gender transition as well as an arduous journey to find her true identity. The men she meet through apps, the other trans women from I-Vaginarium, doctors, co-workers, queer artists, and the theater company she embarks on will give her their own advice, but only time the life experiences will help Raphi envision the path she really needs to take
