My Life as a Rose concerns Ludovic, a young boy who appears at his parents’ house warming party dressed as an oriental princess. Prudery and bigotry raise their ugly faces against Ludo’s family as the boy’s transvestism inspires a hate campaign against them. Ludo is confident of his identity as a girl but desperately tries to suppress his instincts in the face of hostility towards his desires. This colourful, comic satire is a commentary on society’s reaction to exceptions to the norm.
