Eight-year-old Coco doesn’t identify with the male name Aitor she was assigned at birth. She would in fact prefer to be called Lucia. However her family, even her open-minded sculptress mother, are struggling to see Lucia for who she really is. So when Coco and her family spend the summer with her mother’s relatives in the Spanish countryside, the time she spends tending to bees with her open-minded aunt Lourdes, finally gives the little girl the confidence to accept her developing identity and share her feelings with others. Featuring an award-winning central performance from Sofia Otero as Coco, Estibaliz Urresola Solaguren’s moving debut film approaches its young lead character’s story of self-discovery with great sensitivity and humanity
