Tobin, a transgender teen prepares for his acting debut where he’ll be playing a male leading character in the youth play. While rehearsals are in progress, his friends and chosen family band together to help remove him from a difficult living situation and connect him with the support he needs. A government program called a youth agreement gave Tobin financial support to move to a safer environment, but Tobin still hopes his father will come to see his play production. A short documentary about coming out and coming-of-age in a small town.
