Ludovic (Georges du Fresne) is a young boy who wants to be a girl. He likes to play with dolls, wear dresses, wear make-up and generally behave like a girl. He can't wait to grow up to be a woman. He even talks of marrying his best friend at school and cannot understand why anyone is surprised.

His family are not at all comfortable with their would-be little girl and are obliged to face with their discomfort as well as the predictable lack of understanding from the new neighbours. Ludovic is sent to see a psychiatrist in the hopes of fixing whatever is wrong with him, but without success.

Very Funny, touching comentary on social attitudes and childish innocence. The parents are particularly well portrayed by Michèle Laroque and Jean-Philippe Écoffey - swinging between their own desire for Ludo to behave like a normal boy, and their loyalty to him in the face of bigotry and prejudice from friends, neighbours and even Ludo's school.
