In a small town deep in the American Midwest, Suzanna begins a gender transition and becomes a boy: Coby.
Coby’s transformation deeply impacts the lives of everyone who love him – and each member of this tight-knit family must confront their own preconceived notions of gender and sexuality.
Combining excerpts from Coby’s video dairy with candid, heartfelt interviews from his closet friends and family – director Christian Sonderegger’s debut feature is an intimate and sensitive look at timely subject.
Ultimately, Coby’s journey morphs into the transformation of a whole family compelled by love to modify their own perspectives.
Coby weaves together interviews with Coby himself, his girlfriend, parents, and brother – along with his transition timeline YouTube videos. This documentary offers up a deeply compelling real-life portrait of what it looks, sounds, and feels like to go through the transition process.
