Wake up, jump out of bed. Take a quick look in the wardrobe: What to wear? Who is going to see me today? Countless decisions just like these make us who we are. But how freely do we decide these things for ourselves? And what are the expectations of friends, family or society when it comes to appearance, gender or sexual orientation? In 'My funny Valentine' two people throw norms overboard and embark on a playfully search for new identities.
