Sam is frustrated and angry. Despite transitioning at a young age and having the support and unconditional love of his mother and twin sister, he never feels that he is truly seen and accepted as a man. He just wants to enjoy life with his friends and not have his gender be an issue about which he must educate others. This candid documentary follows Sam from age 6 to 22, exposing the pains and pitfalls of bullies, adolescence, and feeling different, and the victories in becoming his authentic self.
