World premiere of this documentary, based on Hilla Medalia’s (Dying in Jerusalem, Dancing in Jaffa) and the YesDocu channel’s successful documentary series.

Four Israeli teenagers undergo an irreversible life-altering process.
Four Israeli families must grapple with the unsettling process their child goes through during the already brutal enough teenage years; each in its one way.
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 when the child we have raised turns out to be a different person to 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.
