Lola, a young transgender woman, is finally about to get an important operation in her transition process. But then her mother, who financially supports her, dies. After living in a hostel in Brussels for two years, Lola is forced by her mother’s death to meet up with her father again. Although they clash on almost everything, they decide to travel to the Belgian coast in order to scatter her mother’s ashes and thus respect her last wish. Lola vers la mer is a moving yet thrilling roadmovie. Laurent Micheli handles the theme of trans identity in an open and tactful manner, in a movie that could be his definitive breakthrough as a filmmaker.
