After his mother's death, Zino tries to find his father and soon finds out that Farid, now Lola, underwent sex reassignment years ago. Nadir Moknèche, a French director of Algerian origin, focuses not only on the issues of identity in terms of gender and sexual orientation. Lola Pater also sensitively examines the numerous forms of relationships between parents and adult children. This intimate family drama draws from the excellent performance of Fanny Ardant in the main role.
