In a year of the unexpected, we are surrounded by women who are persevering through one of the most difficult times for mothers, daughters and sisters. Yet they continue to make it their life's mission to open the doors for the generations to come. In March, WORLD shares the stories of women and girls who have defied social norms for the opportunity at equality.
A loving and insightful portrait of two transgender siblings - Luca and Ren - and their parents, set in the changing social climate following the 2016 presidential election. The film takes audiences behind the scenes as the family navigates puberty, school, dating and more as the children begin living in their authentic genders and Ren participates in the Lil’ Miss Westie Pageant.
Through the whispers of doubt, nevertheless, they persisted. In Afghanistan, Mahboba Akhtarzadah journeys to her classroom against all odds; Crystal Williams climbs the ladder of higher education, aided by some secret admirers; and Joan Anderman learns that it’s never too late to radically change her life.
