"A passionately attentive depiction of a child whose identity reveals the moral and political truths of the society around her."—Richard Brody, The New Yorker

"Lifshitz's touch here is so delicate that it makes most American talking-heads documentaries look particularly crude and formulaic by comparison."—Dan Callahan, The Wrap

A moving portrait of 7-year-old Sasha, who has always known that she is a girl. Sasha’s family has recently accepted her gender identity, embracing their daughter for who she truly is while working to confront outdated norms and find affirmation in a small community of rural France. Realized with delicacy and intimacy, Sébastien Lifshitz’s documentary poetically explores the emotional challenges, everyday feats, and small moments in Sasha’s life.
