Crossing is a moving, compassionate tale of identity, acceptance and unlikely connection that transcends borders and generations.

Lia, a retired school teacher living in Georgia, hears from a young neighbour Achi that her long lost niece Tekla, a transgender woman, has crossed the border into Turkey. Hoping to bring Tekla home after a period of estrangement, Lia travels to Istanbul with the unpredictable Achi to find her. Exploring the hidden depths of the city, they cross paths with a transgender lawyer called Evrim, who helps them in their search.

Humanistic and tender, Akin’s third feature is a heartfelt portrayal of overcoming the degrees of separation that divide us.

"Celebrates the vibrant beauty of Istanbul’s trans community…encourages empathy and reminds us it’s never too late to change for the better." – Little White Lies
