SYNOPSIS:

This intimate story takes us into the lives of three high school athletes from across the US – all at different stages of their athletic seasons, each sharing their lives as transgender teens. We meet Sarah, a skier and teen policymaker in New Hampshire, Andraya, a track star in Connecticut openly transitioning into her authentic self and Mack Beggs, who made headlines last year when he became the Texas State Champion in wrestling, and was heralded as a hero by some while receiving hate and threats from others. Each story is led by the brave and individual voices of these students, allowing extremely personal and vulnerable access into their journeys. These courageous kids offer us the opportunity to see the world through their eyes – and share their struggles and successes along the way.
