‘Sworn virgin’ is a well known but dying tradition in Albania. Women who identify as men decide to deliberately remain a virgin allowing them to live a socially accepted life, behaving and dressing as a man. Bedrie (61) is one of these sworn virgins. One day she gets a call from the young Adele (26) who is exploring her identity as an Albanian woman. She wants to lead a self-determined life in patriarchal Albania and hopes to get answers from Bedrie.
This film is screened together with Sunny Boy.
