LEITIS IN WAITING is the story of Joey Mataele and the Tonga leitis, an intrepid group of native transgender women fighting a rising tide of religious fundamentalism and intolerance in their South Pacific Kingdom. With unexpected humour and extraordinary access to the Kingdom’s royals and religious leaders, Joey’s emotional journey reveals what it means to be different in a society ruled by traditions, and what it takes to be accepted without forsaking who you are.

“Leitis in Waiting is a must see for those who desire a film that shows the effects of culture change and highlights the impact of transformative justice.” -Seattle Twist Film Festival Jury, Best Documentary 2018
