Filmmaker Erik Lemke (BERLIN EXCELSIOR) portrays his great-aunt Evelin: she was born a man, in a country that no longer exists. As a small child, Evelin was expected to only live a few months by doctors. Later in her life, Lemke let the camera roll at a meeting, without a specific plan, and discovered a piece of overlooked family history. Aunt Evi talks about working at Robotron, gender identity and social change. "Those who don't let themselves be overwhelmed by the topics addressed by Evi - loneliness, physical disability, addiction problems and sorrowfully experienced gender incongruence - will experience her as a humorous, detached person."
