Raised as a boy, fifteen-year-old Adam harbours a secret: he has both male and female genitalia, and experiencing menstruation for the first time, his whole life is thrown into turmoil.

Exploring the physical and spiritual limits of gender identity, Filipino filmmaker J.E. Tiglao's debut feature is a fearless coming of age drama that showcases the exciting possibilities of intersex storytelling.
