there is no assault seen, but the protagonist stages a death to make it look like rape. it’s talked about a few times throughout the movie.

Violette faints two times in the movie.

First : after arriving to school and seeing the posters, around 01:06:10.

Second : after trying to tear the posters down, the girls come and laugh at her, she looks at them with a horrified face and then collapses, around 1:07:20.

not in the way the question means it but it might still trigger someone. a cis girl gets a different name but not in a trans way, but she keeps her old name secret. shes referred to by her birth name as a way to insult her and by the nurse ("but thats what it says in your file") and when the other students realise she changed her name they mock her by using her birth name
