A story of uprootedness and belonging.

Of self-discovery and rage.



What exactly would drive a boy from art school to leave his home in Klaipeda/Lithuania, to end up as a girl selling her body in the streets of Berlin, in sweaty back rooms, and on the sticky seats of a porn movie theater?

For more than 10 years photographer and filmmaker J. Jackie Baier follows transsexual Julia K. from Klaipeda/Lithuania through her uncompromising life as a hooker, outlaw and nonconformist.
