Jack was born and lives in an industrial province in northern Italy. He is very close to his family, he hangs out with his pals in pubs and has a hobby of fishing. At the age of 28, he decided to start his transition to become what he has always been: a man. With modesty, sincerity and simplicity, the camera makes itself forgotten to follow his journey, in immersion. It invites the audience to detach itself from its role of observation to sympathize with Jack, to share his questions and universal desires. To share also a look at a certain idea of mass-culinity, a bit traditional, but above all non-toxic and respectful. An endearing personality.
