A trans man lost in a world of desire, symbols, and fantasies

In this newly refashioned version of a classic love story, Schönberg’s music and Giraud’s poetry provide the dramatic framework for the tale of Pierrot: A young woman that regularly dresses as a man falls in love and seduces a young girl that has no clue that her lover has the same sex. When the girl introduces her boyfriend* to her father, he becomes skeptical and unmasks the fraud. Even though, strangely, the feelings of the girl persist without shifting, the father does not allow them to ever see each other again. Furious and delusional the man* develops an adventurous plan to prove his* true ‘masculinity’ to the father of his* lover.
