Lucía is an eight-year-old girl born in a boy's body. She calls herself Cocó and is looking forward to the end of the school year. Her mother, Ane, is in the midst of a professional and emotional crisis and takes advantage of the holidays to take her three children to her mother and aunt Lourdes, a beekeeper. This life-changing summer forces these women from three different generations to be honest with themselves and decide how they want to present themselves to the world. 20,000 Especies de Abejas is a powerful portrait that listens to, rather than speaks for, trans children. Winner of numerous awards at festivals around the world, this film is a gem.
