In einem Jahr mit 13 Monden: Elvira Weishaupt began life as Erwin. After growing up in an orphanage, Erwin was apprenticed to a butcher. As an adult, Erwin had fallen in love with Anton, the manager of the slaughterhouse where he worked. Anton's offhand comment "too bad you're not a girl" sent Erwin to Casablanca to become Elvira. Upon her return, however, Anton rejects Elvira. Convincing neither as a man nor as a woman, to others or to herself, she begins a journey into her past, revisiting old haunts, trying to re-or de-construct the person she's become.
