CGiii Comment

Wow! A film that hits the nail on the head when it comes to the complexities of transition...for all concerned!

There's a time and place for everything...here, the mother oversteps the mark...misjudged, maybe...but, it's done out of love and the absolute need to protect her child.

The music soars, the emotions run deep, the awkardness is palpable...a stunning [and complex] short film.


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

It's the big day of Mathias' confirmation, where he will confirm being a Christian and enter adulthood. Mathias is transgender and just wants to be a normal teenage boy. His mother does everything to protect him, but who is this day really about?
