Australia | 2018 | Direction: Ian W. Thomson | 58 Min. |

All her life, Colleen Young could only live out her inner self behind closed doors, until her wife found out about it - and immediately became her biggest supporter. At 82, after the death of her wife, Colleen takes courage and finally plans her transition. The documentary addresses the question of how we should and can create nursing in the old age. This reflected and thoughtfully arranged portrait accompanies, above all, a brilliant actress, who demonstrates - with a clear vision - that it is never too late to stand up for oneself.
