Tobi and his mom Éva are having a hard time. After the teenager Tobi outed himself as trans*male, the family is faced with the daily bureaucratic and financial challenges of his transition process. Tobi struggles with the ideals of masculinity he wants to match and does not know how things will evolve after school. Meanwhile, Éva tries to unconditionally support her child on his way, but is also confronted with her inner conflicts. With great sympathy, Alexa Bakony’s documentary focusses on Tobi and his mother and their family life in the right-wing conservative Hungary.

Two captivating short documentaries highlight voguing in the light of community work and get us in the mood of dancing, dipping and arm twirls: LEGENDARY offers a historical and cultural crash course about the ballroom scene in Philadelphia. The film is part of an interactive web project for the 30th anniversary of the Philly Ballroom and is only rarely shown in cinema. The second film, FABULOUS, presents Voguing-star Lasseindra Ninja. After working e.g. in New York, France and Brazil, Lasseindra returns home to French Guiana to teach voguing there for the first time. An evening full of self-empowerment, freedom of expression and music!
