Korean Premiere

Based on true events, this film takes place in 1859 at a convent. Alexina, a schoolteacher there, experiences unbearable pains in her lower body. A doctor’s examination carried out after having collapsed in front of her students reveals that she is intersex, and now must leave the convent and live as a man. She must learn how to walk like a man and change her name to a more fitting, masculine name. She can only pray for her new life ahead. [KIM Kyungtae]​
