Intro and Q&A with director Marc-Antoine Lemire

Alexe, a trans woman, and Carl, her gay best friend, disrupt the boundaries of their friendship when they decide to have sex for the first time — and raw emotional truths collide with illusions of breezy detachment at a time of transition.

Alexe, une transsexuelle, et Carl, son meilleur ami homosexuel, brouillent les limites de leur amitié lorsqu'ils décident de faire l'amour pour la première fois, faisant ressortir de dures vérités émotionnelles qui entrent en collision avec leur insouciance illusoire en cette période de transition.
