Valentina, a 17-year-old transgender girl, moves to the countryside of Brazil with her mother Márcia to start fresh. To avoid being bullied in her new school, Valentina tries to enroll with her new name and hopes to be private about her gender history. However, the girl and her mother quickly face dilemmas when the local public high school needs a second parental signature for enrollment…

Presenting trans actress Thiessa Woinbackk’s debut in features, Valentina is a reflection of the real life hardships that society forces a strong young woman to endure and embrace who she is.
