What does it actually mean to be a woman? And what’s femininity? For Jordy this is crystal clear: it’s only when one has the physical characteristics of a woman that one can call herself a true woman. Jordy is already a woman in heart, soul and her fantasies. But she’s also on the brink of her physical transition.
Especially now, wandering in the realm between man and woman, she feels that the dichotomy is more poignant than ever. Must she conform herself to fit in? And what is the price for doing so? Through the semi-animated documentary Jordy in Transitland we enter Jordy’s fantasy world. A modern, raw fairytale as a poetic protest against today’s parochialism.
