Just a normal person

Producers: Malin Björkman-Widell, Lars Säfström, Charlotte Madsen

Some people are born in the wrong body. Sam is one of them. This film is about everyone’s right to be who they really are. 22 years ago the identical twins Isabelle and Denise were born. But already as a kid Isabelle knew she was a boy, born in a girl’s body. 

From the moment his mother realized that Sam, whom he named himself, was absolutely serious, she has fully backed him. Standing by his side is also his twin sister Denise. The film follows Sam from childhood to high school graduation. During this time he has gone through breast removal surgery and received testosterone injections
