7-year-old Sasha has always known she was a little girl, even though she was born a boy.
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 leads a constant battle to make her difference understood and accepted. “Little Girl” questions the currency of gender roles in our society.
