SOUTHEAST PREMIERE

If Ren could go back in time to before she was four, she would tell her parents that she wasn’t happy living as a boy. Now Ren is about to take part in a rite of passage for their community in West Haven, Connecticut, as the first out transgirl to compete in the Little Miss Westie Pageant. Her older brother Luca, who previously took part in the pageant when he lived as a girl, coaches her through the competition. Gender dynamics evolve in front of the viewer’s eyes while two transgender siblings explore who they are in this intimate portrait.
