SCRIPT

Martin has always wanted to be a woman, now he wants to become one. At the art school where he‘s a student, he arranges with his art teacher Bob Delamarre to earn money sitting in the nude for art classes over several months, throughout his hormonal treatment and until the final operation. For several months a small group of students works on the representation of Martin’s changing body and mind in a multiform artistic project called ‘Consuelo‘. When the art works produced by some of the students for the project turn out quite successful within the art world, Martin needs to start negotiating contracts on how he is now to exhibit his persona, body and soul... The persona, born out of artworks, creeps into his life and slowly takes control of it all, creating havoc in Martin’s far from fully-fledged definition of his new self...
