A documentary about intersex and trans persons in Kenya. When his family tries to kill him, Sidney, who is intersex, flees to Nairobi where he meets a group of transgender friends. Together, they fight discrimination and discover life, love and self-worth.

“In 2013 I travelled to Kenya to visit my sister but a meeting with Guillit, a transboi and activist would change the course of the next 4 years of my life. Guillit just wanted to be heard. He told me other members of the transgender and intersex community, living on the edge of society, wanted to speak out too” (Tristan Aitchison).
