Sara, a fifty-year-old transgender woman, realises she cannot just be herself only when she is alone and hidden at home. She needs the world to see her as she really is and she prepares to go to the street for the first time. All along her way through the streets of the city, she will face the prejudices of a society that does not let her be who she is, she will fight her fears and insecurities and she will live with a world that overwhelms her and will make her braver than ever.
