International Short Film Competition

For transgender Kei and his partner Erin, life in the Japanese countryside is far from easy. Moving to the more liberal and anonymous Tokyo would be the solution Erin longs for. But Kei is deeply bound to his home town and doesn’t want to give up his dream: to live there freely and happily despite all prejudice.
