One Of A Kind. Something beyond being a woman or a man?

"What does it mean to be a man or a woman?" Beyond biological notions, this question takes on a particular meaning that is found in society's everyday life: "Pink is for girls", "Don't cry, be a Man ! "," Women are more maternal while men are stronger ". 

These gender stereotypes have been rooted in our education and profoundly influence the way we live every day. What about those who cross the line and confront the codes that rule the gender that was assigned to them at birth? 

This film depicts the portrait of 5 transgender people, through their questions, their doubts and their reflections on this complex subject which concerns us all.
