A story about five young people who feel neither male nor female, but rather place themselves somewhere inbetween.
A story about five young people who feel neither male nor female, but rather place themselves somewhere inbetween. Everyday they are confronted with being different, yet they are proud to be who they are. The young people in this film all have their own struggles but together they tell a strong story of acceptance. The film plays with the curiosity, interest and incomprehension of anything outside the mainstream gender norm. Isn’t everyone’s gender actually ‘fluid’?
