Storyline

Jack and Yaya met at ages three and two through their shared backyard fence. They spent their childhood together, building forts and burning trash cans in their small hometown in South Jersey. From a young age, Yaya and Jack saw each other as they truly were, a girl and a boy, even though the rest of the world didn't see them that way. As they grew older, they supported each other as they both came out as transgender. Decades later, Jack and Yaya remain best friends. Jack now lives in Boston with his loyal pup, Plinko, and works as a kindergarten teacher, while Yaya lives in her childhood home, waiting tables and trying to make ends meet after her mother's passing. During his summer vacation, Jack travels back to his childhood home to spend time with Yaya and his extended family. Jack and Yaya follows these two friends for a year and explores their unique relationship, drawing on home videos and conversations with their eclectic cast of friends and family. Written by J.B.

A Beautiful Story
29 June 2020 | by jehihrsaSee all my reviews

This documentary is such a beautiful story about love, acceptance, and friendship. It is a testament to the fact that when a person is loved and supported by their friends and family, that they can be their true authentic selves. Everyone deserves to feel the love and appreciation of support to be happy in their lives, and the story of Jack and Yaya's transition and the support they gave each other throughout their entire lives is such a beautiful message.
