Foreign Bodies is the story of Adam, a political hero fighting with communism in Poland. He is a perfect husband, a good friend and a role-model for others. But no-one knows that he is a female trapped in his own male body. So after the fall of communism in 1989, when Poland gains political freedom, he changes sex and turns into Ewa. Now, as Ewa, she must struggle with social rejection, poverty and solitude in a new, capitalist country.
Mixing past with present, Ewa discovers the dual imprisonment of an individual in two political systems...
With support from The Embassy of the Republic of Poland and the National Lesbian and Gay Federation.
