Over the course of two years, this documentary tracks the transition of three teenagers, their battles with gender and identity issues and the upheaval it causes in them and their loved ones.


In the film we join Logan, Soän and Effie Alexandra in trans group meetings and meet the parents, who are torn by the melancholy of the past but also see the importance of talking about this subject in the hope that it will help other parents. 


Director Robin Harsch realized he had personal issues and a great lack of knowledge concerning LGBTQI+ issues and sex changes, being a father himself and was shocked to realize how much intolerance still exists towards the LGBTQI+ community and felt he needed to set the right example for his children.
