Eleven-year-old Emma always thought her family was just like all the others – until one fateful morning when her father Thomas explains that he’s going to be living as a woman from now on. As Thomas slowly transforms into the elegantly dressed Agnete, the relationship between father-becoming-mother and daughter also changes. Emma learns that maybe it’s change that is actually perfectly normal … Malou Reymann draws a sensitive and humorous portrait of a family that must break from traditional notions in order to find a common future. Her own family’s story served as the model for this moving tragicomedy. “The film is a very authentic reflection of what I went through back then. I didn’t need this film as therapy – I didn’t make it for me, but instead I’ve told a story that I hope others can identify with”, she says.
