Valentina, a 17-year-old girl, moves to the countryside of Brazil with her mother Márcia to start afresh.

However, the girl and her mother quickly face dilemmas when the local public high school needs a second parental signature for enrolment. Presenting trans actress Thiessa Woinbackk’s debut in features, “Valentina” is a reflection of the real life hardships that society forces a strong young woman to endure, and to embrace who she is without question.
