Sasha has always known exactly who she is and, at seven years of age, she is letting the world know, too.

As society fails to treat her like other children her age, Sasha’s supportive family lead a constant battle to ensure that her life is understood and accepted. Throughout her daily life at school; during dance lessons, and attending birthday parties, we see at close range moments of Sasha’s joy and her heartbreaking challenges, as the family works to provide the best possible childhood for their little girl.

Award-winning filmmaker Sébastien Lifshitz follows the family for a year, capturing with insightful and delicate, subtle camerawork, a year in the life of a family who are setting an example for trans youth and for families around the world.
