Every 13-year-old girl dreams of that nice, but hard-to-get, boy. And Joppe is no different, consulting her friend on how to ask Brian out. …But just how should she tell Brian that she was born a boy?

The original Dutch title is 'Ik ben een meisje!'. The film has been broadcasted by NCRV and the producer and distributor is Hollandse Helden.

The film won lots of awards, like the Jury Award for Best Short Documentary at the Los Angeles Filmfest 2011, WorldWide Short Film Festival Toronto 2011, Exground Film Festival Wiesbaden Germany 2011 and the Audience Award at the New York International Children's Film Festival 2012 (ages 12-18) and at the TranScreen Film Festival Amsterdam 2011. Joppe, the main character, also won an award: the Teresa Pellati Award for Best Acting Performance 2011 (although it is a documentary, but the jury called her a girl with the same charisma as an actress).
