Max was assigned a girl at birth, but has since transitioned into a transgender boy. Bastian was assigned a boy at birth, but most of the time identifies as a girl. Max and Bastian struggle with their bodies as they develop, feeling it is not going in the right direction. They are considering whether they should stop their puberty by starting hormone treatment. A choice that will change their lives forever is becoming more and more urgent as they race against time to make the right decision.

Their voices are changing. Their bodies are developing, but the consequences of hormone treatment are irreversible. How do you find out who you are when in the middle of the greatest transition of your life?
