Chris feels neither man nor woman, but more like a 'Two-Spirit' in between genders. Now turning sixty, this professor of management is taking the big plunge. This sensitive film follows one eventful year in Chris Muth's life, from an operation in Thailand to an eventual return home to Switzerland, where Chris will become Christa. Director Laurence Perigaud gives a highly sensitive and humorous account of this year of transition and transformation-body and soul-of a human being in quest of freedom.
"Directed with simplicity and delicacy, this documentary defies stereotypes as it documents a person story of emancipation." -Le Matin
