Gender chaos

Gender chaos


Young doctor, Nohr works in the emergency room to become a general practitioner. In this competitive environment, her fighting spirit and motivation have been put to the test. “It’s not a job for a woman!”, She would almost let herself be convinced. But during one stormy evening, the spirit of her colleague and rival, Maxence, is propelled into her own body. Faced with such confusion, only the acceptance of the other, but also of oneself, will put an end to an unreasonable gender struggle.

Program 2018
