Winner of the Teddy Award at this year’s Berlinale, A Brief Story from the Green Planet follows trans woman Tania on a strange and surprising odyssey.

When Tania receives the news that her grandmother has passed away,she returns to her hometown with two friends to take care of her grandmother’s estate. Tania realizes she has inherited more than she bargained for when she discovers a peculiar creature in the house. Her grandmother’s dying request is thatTania return this friendly companion to the place where it first appeared, led only by the help of a mysterious map. When the road gets rough, the travellers must overcome their fears and work together to complete their mission.

An odd premise breaks open to reveal a heartwarming tale about chosen family and the power that outsiders wield when they stick together.
