A story about five young people who neither feel male or female, but rather position themselves somewhere in between. 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 about acceptance. The film plays with the curiosity, interest and incomprehension of anything outside the mainstream gender norm.
Isn’t everyone’s gender actually ‘fluid’? Wouldn’t it be liberating if we could break the narrow-mindedness about gender?
The five “gender fluid” characters make us question our sometimes-rigid society and offer a moment of reflection, how male or female are you? The film celebrates the individual.
