From a young age, Natsuki knew she was a girl despite her biological sex. Against the backdrop of conservative Japanese society, this poignant docudrama tells her remarkable story of gender transition.

Reflecting on her high school years, Natsuki interviews the supportive friends and family who supported her choices – and also confronts the people those who oppressed her freedom.

Tracing Natsumi’s story to the present, this compelling portrait of gender identity in contemporary Japan offers insights of a layered experience in a complex society.
