Hildegund is always getting in trouble for acting  too masculine. If it was up to her she would have been born a boy, but that's not how the world works. Or, at least that's what she has always believed. Then, Hildegund gets the opportunity to dress as a young man during a pilgrimage east. Along the way she will face challenges, heartbreak, and will finally be able to ask the question: How can wearing male clothes be a disguise when it feels so authentic? 

This is the story of a journey across continents and across genders. 

Set in 12th century Europe and inspired by a true story.
