Canadian, Trans

Ren reluctantly accompanies her very Italian family on a beach resort holiday. As her younger sister makes friends and parties, Ren navigates a resort that does not cater to her and struggles to cope with her parents’ loving yet overbearing nature, trying to balance the yearning for independence with the comfort of being taken care of. Looming in the back of Ren’s mind is the secret of her recent dismissal from work, and that once the holiday is over, she will need to rely even more on her family’s support.

Luis De Filippis’ debut feature lovingly explores the realities of being a trans woman and a stunted millennial still learning that it’s okay to ask for help.
