A heartfelt plea for acceptance
10 November 2019 | by almostwittySee all my reviews

This is a very sympathetic dramatic film following the lives of two trans women in Hong Kong, at different stages of their journey. It's hard to fault the passion and sincereity of the characters, although the dramatic conflict is a tad underplayed given the themes that swirl around the film. It's also nicely shot digitally, featuring many many sunny skies.
