Invited to International Documentary film festival Amsterdam, this film follows the man who wants to have transgender surgery with the style of Cinema-Verite. His boyfriend supports him and his family accepts the fact but is heart broken. On the big day of rebirth, her boyfriend throws a new birthday party. After legalization of transgender surgery in 2004, Iran became the Mecca among the transgender. This film reveals the meaning and interpretation of being transgender in the Islamic culture and the family’s reaction to its son/daughter. (KIM Sunah)
