Speechless In Japan. An outcast in Tokio

Tired of not confronting her true self, the filmmaker Weronika Mliczewska  quit her job, spent everything she had on a camera and went as far away as she could. From then on she wanted to live fully in tact with herself. And she found the ideal place to do so: Japan.

There she bumps into Yamada-San, a 63-year cross-dressing pariah in Tokyo. A lo largo de varios días compartiendo con este irreverente personaje, Weronika comprende cómo a veces las máscaras pueden llegar a revelar la esencia dentro de nosotros mismos.
