Director’s Statement

Try our best to turn the abstract so-called “conversion therapy” into a unique experience through film, which makes people feel the insult to personality and the destruction of dignity. At the same time, we reviewed Xiaodi’s personal growth history and family memories to help the audience understand the experience and growth process of a transgender person.
