In the outskirts of a province of the north of Italy, full of guns factories, hunting grounds and lakes for fishing, Jack starts the transition in order to let his body be what he has always felt to be: a man. Through a routine made of part-time jobs, bar friends and no hobbies, Jack starts asking himself about what being a man means, beside the body characteristics, and what kind of a man he should be, wondering about what kind of masculine models are offered by his valley.
