A reflective journey to understand and decode gender binaries
A woman fighting for women’s rights from men, a trans-woman who is seeking validation for trans women’s identity and rights from both men and women, a non-binary person who just want to express themself freely – this film is a quest for the ultimate representation of a gender role through the personal journey of the filmmaker.
