Films about homosexuality usually revolve around adult love stories or coming-of-age tales. Ma Vie en Rose magically explores the weighty issue of transvestism through the point of view of 7-year-old Ludovic (DuFresne), who is convinced that God accidentally dropped a female chromosome in the trash when creating him. Ludovic and his parents live in a close, conservative French town that is not ready for the boy's homosexuality, especially when he “marries” his neighbor, Jerome (Rivière). Though they initially dismiss his behavior as a stage, Ludovic's parents cope astonishingly well with their son's sexuality, even when it drives them from the town and begins to drive a wedge in their marriage.
