A controversial documentary, not just by the tone and the rigorous control of director Marcus Lindens, but above all by the taboo-breaking content. Two men talk candidly about their biggest regrets. Mikael and Orlando were both born as a man, after a sex change operation, they have lived for years as a woman. One wants to return to his male sex and gender, the other has already had surgery again and has decided to live 'in between' like a third gender. An award-winning documentary on gender and norms, a cause for debate.
