Synopsis

Uganda has been called “the pearl of Africa” because of its stunning diversity, but it’s a very dangerous place for Cleopatra Kambugu, who was born a man but is on her way to becoming a woman. With support from family and her boyfriend Nelson, she undertakes the physically and emotionally drastic transformation to a different body. Filmmaker Jonny von Wallström follows the cheerful, courageous Cleo and her dedicated partner on their journey.
