Gabi: Between Ages 8 and 13

Gabi, mellan åren 8 till 13

24th TDF: Greek Premiere

Gabi just wants to be Gabi. A simple wish one could think, but it’s not. Gabi feels different. As an outspoken eight-year-old this never created problems. But as the family moves to a small town and puberty closes in, things start to change. Over the course of five years, we literally see Gabi growing up before our eyes, challenging the preconceptions of gender, norms, and the right to be who you are.
