Genders, generations and cultures collide in this comedy about the modern family unit. A South Asian transgender woman sees her life flipped on its head when she meets a "white" teenaged son she didn’t know she had. Montrealer Eisha Marjara gives a fresh take in her directing style, delivering a resounding plea for casting off gender stereotypes.
