Marianna is an attractive 40-year-old woman who has just sued her parents in order to obtain a sex change. Alienated by her mother and neglecting her best friends, she seeks refuge in a theatre group where she tries to make sense of her situation by rehearsing a play based on her past.
Call Me Marianna chronicles with heart-wrenching honesty a journey of gender transition, which earned it a string of awards in film festivals worldwide. By following Marianna, this documentary becomes an enquiry on matters such as love, identity, therapeutical art, but also faith.
