Laura's difficult quest for identity as transsexual – from childhood to adult age – develops through the love story with Auretta, who will gradually come to identify herself as being lesbian and will take part in the feminist movement. Laura’s journey through the discovery of relationships and sexuality starts in the late 50’s in the Southern Italian region of Puglia and culminates in Rome at the end of the 70’s on the background of the birth and fights of the sexual freedom movements.
