This documentary follows the life of Valentina Petrillo, a Paralympic athlete who lives with visual impairments. Her goal is to be the first transgender woman to compete for Italy in the women's category at the 2021 Paralympics in Tokyo. After her transition in 2019, Valentina fought determinedly for the right to compete in this category. The film explores her journey, including the controversies it provokes, and shows her inspiring mission to overcome societal norms and realise her dream.

Followed by a Q&A with the protagonist Valentina Petrillo and the director Elisa Mereghetti.
