Only another day, then Caroline will be perfect. The woman in her mid-fifties lies on her hospital bed and says goodbye to her old self. For the first time she feels whole. But that moment vanishes before Caroline can enjoy it. Immediately after her gender reassignment surgery, Caroline receives a message that her father is going to die. The fragmentary memories of places at the Rhine where she was abused as a child and teenager increasingly haunt Caroline’s presence. She seeks help from a psychologist. In weekly therapy sessions, Caroline embarks on a journey into her past self.
