This short documentary tracks the life of a high school student in the Mississippi Delta as he considers transitioning from a man to a woman. As the country continues debating issues of gender expression, the film is a timely glimpse at how these political decisions affect those living in conservative areas.

The documentary is part of a series called New Deep South, co-created by The Front, a media startup founded and run by women. You can find more information on their otherwork on their website, Facebook, and Twitter.
