Valentijn de Hingh is a transgender model who was followed by a documentary film crew from the age of 8 to 17. At first, when filming began, the footage was supposed to be used in a television documentary about children questioning their gender identity. But then filmmaker Hetty Niesch got the idea to follow de Hingh and stuck with her for nine years, until she was 17 years old; that documentary finally aired on Dutch television in 2007.
