An intimate autobiographical documentary from Brazilian filmmaker Coraci Ruiz following the revelation that her eldest teenager Noah, then 15-years-old, was having doubts about their gender identity. Realizing that she would have to deal with a new and highly challenging theme, she started filming with Noah's permission. This was her way of approaching her son and trying to understand what was happening. The film brings forward an experience that welcomes conflicts but is positive, that leaves the register of suffering, pain, misunderstanding, and vulnerability. It is an exercise in letting go of your certainties.
