Four Israeli families grapple with the unsettling, irreversible, life-altering processes their children go through during the already brutal teenage years. Four years of intimate and raw documenting paint an emotional, dramatic, and eye-opening picture at the heart of which are some fundamental questions: what does it mean to be born in a body that is misaligned with your gender? How would we, as parents, react if the child we raised turned out to be a different person than the one we thought they were? And is our love for our children truly unconditional? In a long, unprecedented documentary journey, the director chronicles the physical, emotional and social ups and down in the foursome’s and their families’ lives – Israeli teens who, despite the hefty price, are no longer afraid of being themselves.
