Gender Splendour Week at The Grove Community School in Toronto promotes mental health wellness, community activism, and social justice. In this documentary, children and teachers from the school were interviewed during Gender Splendour week. Amid workshops during a week in April, non-binary-conforming and cisgender identifying children have the opportunity to ponder, question, and defy gender stereotypes, which are prevalent in society, culture, and the media.

The documentary suggests that this progressive approach should be adopted in all schools across Canada to increase awareness of violence against LGBT children and teens. The goal of the film is to sensitize viewers to the struggles this group of children experiences in the educational system, and to help reduce the high rate of self-destructive behaviours and suicide within this vulnerable group.
