Eight-year-old girl has a seemingly liberal mother who allows her to wear androgynous clothes and calls her Cocó… but only at home and when the family leaves for the holidays to the countryside, Cocó suddenly has to act like a boy, so she does not cause an “uproar”. However, Cocó is baffled by the fact that thousands of species of bees can live side by side, yet people cannot. Director Estibaliz Urresola Solaguren’s intimate film depicts the most important moment in the life of a trans girl – stubborn decision to be truly herself. IMDb trailer
