7-year-old Sasha has always known she was a little girl, even though she was assigned male at birth. As society fails to treat her like the other children her age – in her daily life at school, dance lessons or birthday parties – her supportive family, and in particular her doting mother, leads a constant battle to make her difference understood and accepted.
Multi-award winning documentary filmmaker Sébastien Lifshitz, known for his sensitive explorations of marginalised and queer experiences, follows Sasha and her family for a year, capturing with his insightful, delicate and subtle camera their truly moving moments of joy and the many challenges they face together.
