What is not said is as if it did not exist, grandfather had told him one day, and it was time to exist. Alex, until then, had only lived behind the scenes. Now there was no going back. The camera was asking him to speak. Before he had time to think, he connected the camera to the computer. Twenty two seconds. That was the time it took to upload it to the networks. 22 seconds recounts first-person events from the childhood and adolescence of a transsexual boy who, from his earliest years, knows that his gender identity does not match the sex assigned to him at birth. A work that seeks to make visible, from empathy, a group of historically silenced and denigrated people who fight for the laws - and society - to stop considering them sick.
