Cim wants to be like everyone else, like the boys, but have difficulties being just that. His search for an identity has often lead to destructive actions in form of getting drunk, cutting his arms and suicide attempts. When he looks at himself in the mirror he sees a boy. But somewhere inside of him there is a girl. But what defines a boy and what does it mean to be a girl? Can Cim ever find love being a Cim? Pinocchio without a nose is a film about growing up in a small town, being in love, punk and the longing to be a real boy.
