Trailer

Éva and her family live in a small village in Hungary. Her 16-year-old child recently came out as transgender and chose the name Tobi. After the initial shock, the whole family rallies together to support him, though it is not without awkward communication slip-ups. Tobi is determined to become biologically male while struggling with the challenges of growing up. Éva tries her best to be the mother her son needs, but losing the girl she raised is not easy for her. Things start to get complicated when the teenage Tobi names his non-binary identity. In her debut, the director opens up the topical themes of growing up, finding oneself, family life and communication. Colors of Tobi is a story of mutual respect with all the colors of the rainbow.
