Maria Johansdotter is a brave woman who will do anything to live her life as an independent person and musician. She follows her heart and faces the consequences of her actions with pride. On the judge's question whether she is male or female she answers being both, however more of a man. Today, more than 300 years later, the time has come to tell the remarkable story of Maria Johansdotter/Magnus Johansson, whose destiny begins in the late 17th century in Föglö in Åland and ends a few decades later in Stockholm.

Premiere: July 15th 2014 in Alandica, Mariehamn, Åland.
