A Beautiful Story
jehihrsa29 June 2020
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.

Incredible story
lsantelli2428 July 2020
Very poignant, heartfelt story of 2 people who have gone through incredible journeys and challenges in order to be the person they feel they ought to be. Something must of us take for granted daily. Gave me a deeper understanding of the struggles and obstacles trans go through.

Intriguing

Warning: Spoilers
Jack and Yaya first met one another at the very young ages of two and three, as their families shared a backyard fence. Growing up together in South Jersey, they saw each other as they truly were, a girl and a boy, despite everyone else seeing them as they appeared from the outside. As they grow up, they learn how to support one another as they both come out as transgender.

This documentary tells their story.

Decades later, Jack and Yaya remain best friends. This film shows where life has taken them through conversations, home movies and by recording a year in their lives.

This is a life I will never live, so it was very intriguing to me to watch it as a voyeur and learn the struggles these two have endured.
