In a small town deep in the American Midwest, Suzanna begins a gender transition to become a boy, named Coby. Throughout this period of transformation Coby and his loved ones must confront their own preconceived notions of gender and sexuality while facing difficult decisions and prejudice. Combining excerpts from Coby’s video dairy with candid, heartfelt interviews from his closest friends and family, Christian Sonderegger’s debut feature is an intimate and sensitive look at this timely subject.
"Coby has made his body, and the director his film (...) A pure feel good movie, except that it has nothing fictional, nothing invented." (Le Monde) COBY premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.
