A documentary about transgender love. The film is about Ryan, an 18-year-old transgender person who is a singer-songwriter. Ryan has a relationship with Alexis, two years younger than him, and Alexis’ family does not look kindly on it. We follow Ryan’s artistic career and what it is like to love as a young transgender person. This is a fine portrayal of young love, becoming an adult and the search for an identity beyond the heterosexual norm.
