Laura lives with her parents in L’Alfàz del Pi, a small town in the autonomous community of Valencia, in Spain. She likes to sing and is a fan of Ariana Grande. Three years ago, she started her transition. Despite the difficulties, her family, friends, and schoolmates support her desire. Now, her dream is to have her first communion. Laura’s mother starts to make preparations, despite having no certainty as to whether the church will grant Laura her wish. Her father tries to adapt to the situation, but he is nostalgic, missing the memories he has of that boy who is no longer there. Laura is about to face adolescence, and with it, a series of changes that will mean a new chapter for her and her family, alongside the uncertainty and fear that each decision they make can be definitive.
