Marion, born a woman, becomes Marian, a man. The documentary Becoming Me accompanies its protagonist with depth and attention for ten years, from his first doubts to daily life after his decision. Through Marian’s journey, the director questions the concept of normality in South Tyrolean society. Will Marian be accepted as a man in his country or will he lose everything by deciding to be himself?
