Searching for an identity. The film records the transition from being a woman to being a man that the director made between the late 1990s and 2005. Simone Cangelosi started work on the project in 1998 as a sort of visual diary following his physical and psychological transformation step by step. Being so bound up with the main character's life, however, the documentary itself changed over the years and turned into something quite different from what had been planned at the outset.
