Being addressed as J, using gender-neutral pronouns and living with their parents in a Chicago suburb, their fourteenth birthday marks the day when J must stop taking hormone blockers and spend the weekend deciding whether they will go through puberty as a boy or a girl. A fragile and meditative first feature by a director dubbed by critics as a successor to Abbas Kiarostami. The heart of this film produced by Jane Campion is a young trans* actor in the role of J.
