Spanning 19 years in the life of transgender teen Georgie Stone. We follow her as she affirms her gender, finds her voice and fights to change Australia's unjust laws.

Georgie Stone is a trans actress best known for her role in the Australian soap Neighbours. Filmed over 19 years, in close collaboration with Georgie and her family, this landmark work follows Georgie from her early childhood legal battles with the Australian state to the present day as she fights on behalf of other trans teens. Extensive family archives, elliptical editing, and astoundingly intimate access show the pain experienced by trans kids navigating state bureaucracy, but also the power of collective action.
