Synopsis
An uplifting but never sentimental documentary portrait of an extraordinary figure of 20th-century history.

At 95, Lucy is the oldest transsexual woman in Italy and one of the few remaining survivors of the Dachau concentration camp. Her tumultuous life becomes a metaphor of the human will to persevere. Lucy’s reflections are not only full of wisdom, but also attest to a young-at-heart, almost indestructible cheerfulness. Above all, she is passionate about the cosmos. [39FFMUC]
