After a 10-year absence from the small New Zealand farming neighborhood the place he was born and raised, transgender activist Caz (a formidable Elz Carrad) has made the tough choice to return and try and rebuild a relationship together with his estranged father. He reconnects together with his greatest good friend, Anahera (Awhina-Rose Ashby), who’s struggling to say her personal id as a Mãori girl, and with Jem (Arlo Inexperienced), his boyfriend from the time earlier than his transition. “You weren’t like the opposite ladies,” fumbles Jem, as he makes an attempt to make sense of his emotions. “That’s as a result of I wasn’t one,” Caz explains, patiently.
However the city of Rurangi is conservative and entrenched, and never everybody is able to welcome Caz again. The storytelling is perhaps a little bit simplistic at occasions, however Carrad is magnetic, and the tentative rekindling of romance with Jem is a pleasure.
