15-year-old Lara wants to become a ballerina, and trains hard with her fellow students. At the same time, she is undergoing hormone treatment, which will lead to a gender-confirming operation. The story, which is based on a true story, depicts a beautiful father/daughter relationship. In Girl, the surroundings are mostly supportive, but Lara still faces many challenges in an inner struggle to become who she wants to be.
Girl is Cannes 2018's most award-winning film with four awards for best debut film (Camera d'or), best actor in Un Certain Regard awarded to Victor Polster for the role of Lara, the International Critics Award Fipresci and Queer Palm for best film with LGBTIQA theme.
