FRI 18/06 : 5pm
Just when Lola, 18 years old and transgender, learns that she can finally have surgery, her mother, who is her only financial support, passes away. Abiding by her mother’s last wishes, Lola and her father, who are permanently in conflict and have not seen each other for two years, undertake a journey all the way to the Belgian coast. They realize the outcome of the journey may not be the one they were both expecting… Lola is brought to life with astounding sensitivity by Mya Bollaers, who is openly transgender, and has won prestigious Magritte and Golden Ibis awards for her acting debut. Director Laurent Micheli brings a tender touch to the road movie genre that explores family relationships and identity.
