Guido is 11 years old boy who doesn’t want to be a boy. He doesn’t like football and prefers chatting to the girls in his class. In fact, he also feels more like a girl. And then the day comes when Guido decides to be Nina. The only thing missing is for her friends and family how to accept her wishes.
