17-year-old Pierre is gradually discovering who he is: he plays in a band; he is popular with the girls as well as the guys, thanks to his androgynous appearance; he likes to try on women’s makeup and clothing. But his world falls apart when it is revealed that his loving mother Aracy robbed him from the cradle.
