Jack and Yaya first met one another at the very young ages of two and three, as their families shared a backyard fence. Growing up together in South Jersey, they saw each other as they truly were, a girl and a boy, despite everyone else seeing them as they appeared from the outside. As they grow up, they learn how to support one another as they both come out as transgender.
This documentary tells their story.
Decades later, Jack and Yaya remain best friends. This film shows where life has taken them through conversations, home movies and by recording a year in their lives.
This is a life I will never live, so it was very intriguing to me to watch it as a voyeur and learn the struggles these two have endured.
