After her mother passed away, Leny finally had time to follow her dream of cycling around the world. She didn’t get further than New Zealand where she met the love of her life – another woman. Leny came out of the closet aged 68. Since then she has thrown herself into lesbian life, making up for lost time. Now aged 82, she is an inspiration to many, but is not getting any younger. She is determined to make the most of her remaining years.

A uniquely positive story about a woman coming out at a ripe age, yet without any bitterness about the past. She embraces her new sexuality with more vibrance and energy than many younger people might have. She does, however, have one regret.

‘Over the Rainbow’ won Best Film and the Audience Prize at the Roze Filmdagen 2015 in Amsterdam.
