Retired teacher Lia promised her dying sister that she would seek out her daughter, Lia’s long lost niece Tekla. Together with cocky young Achi, who offers to be her guide, she sets off for Turkey to search for Tekla in Istanbul’s trans community. But locating someone who never intended to be found is harder than Lia thought. Can Evrim, a tough, street-smart lawyer fighting for trans rights, and who’s currently in the process of completing her own transition, help them? A bright, warm drama about the possibilities of personal transformation, as the action shifts from the wild Black Sea coast of Georgia to the vibrant cityscapes of Istanbul from the writer-director of And Then We Danced.
