Using the example of 'Breakfast on Pluto' (2005) the authoress analyses the idea of narrative identity, how it is created and how it is used as an epistemological tool. The main character of the film - a transvestite foundling, Patrick 'Kitten' Braden - creates a script which he tries to realize in his life. Instead of conforming to social norms and expectations, he chooses nonconformist search for meaning and love in his life. The events are presented as chapters of a book. The subjective narration of the film presents these fragments of reality that played a significant role in the creation of Patrick's identity; as the narration progresses, so the identity of the main character changes. The hero, through his insistence on discovering and creating his own identity, is excluded from the rest of society. Through the creation of his identity, he constructs a haven for people who do not conform to expectations of society; he reaches the planet Pluto, where he finds love and long lost family.
