“When I grow up, I’ll be a girl”, a three-year-old Sasha declares to her mother. Initially resistant to her rather mature declaration of identity, Sasha’s parents have accepted what their daughter has known about herself all along. Although born biologically male, Sasha is a girl.

Four years on, Sasha has been happily living as a girl, having the undying love and support from her family, and having made a few good friends at her primary school. However, there are those in life, such as her obstinate teachers, who have trouble accepting little Sasha’s identity.

Over a year, French filmmaker Sebastién Lifshitz follows Sasha and her family’s journey through gender specialist appointments, meetings with her intransigent teachers, ethics around gender identity in childhood, and the heartrending fight of a family that just want acceptance for their daughter.
