TORNAR-SE UM HOMEM NA IDADE MÉDIA

Portugal

Synopsis

Mirene and André, and Carl and Vicente, are both couples in their mid-thirties. While Mirene and André struggle with their fertility, Vicente decides to undergo an experimental procedure, implanting an ovary in his body in the hopes of having a child with Carl. A love drama of speculative undertones, BECOMING MALE IN THE MIDDLE AGES is an intimate tale about queer sexuality, bodily autonomy, reproductive desires, and the ghost of normativity.
