An old Balkan tradition allows women who renounce their femininity and take a vow of chastity to live their lives out as men, with all the freedoms only men enjoy. Mark, born Hana, is one of these sworn virgins. After thirty plus years of living in an Albanian mountain town, Mark is haunted by memories of his estranged sister who escaped their fiercely patriarchal society for Italy. In a tentative journey to Milan, faced with a strange new world, Mark begins to reclaim his original identity as Hana.
