Fantastic Reality

Leon a 15 year old is part of the Cosplay community, teenagers who dress up as characters from comics  and Japanese Anime, meet and role-play. Leon writes a blog, where he appears  as a French character from a web show. Leon’s blog has over 100,000  fans  from all over the world  that know him as the character- bold, sassy  and colorful, totally different  from his own  personality. As the character he is being asked about  topics such as confidence, love, friendship and personal relationships, which he answers with great confidence, while his big secret remains unrevealed between   the lines.
As he becomes a well known virtual character and appreciated cosplay, he begins to unfold and  take off  his costume understanding who he reallys- he is a boy trapped in the body of a girl. Now Leon can look deep within with great honesty , explore his true self and share it with the world.
