- Director: Sharon Liese
Filmed over five years in Kansas City, this documentary follows four kids - beginning at ages 4, 9, 12, and 15 - as they redefine 'coming of age.' These kids and their families reveal intimate realities of how gender is re-shaping the family next door in a never-before-told chronicling of growing up transgender in the heartland. The film is a nuanced examination of how families tussle, transform, and sometimes find unexpected purpose in their identities as transgender families. Lighthearted and deeply moving, this story teaches us something new about being human.
