Being a teenager isn't easy, especially when you're an 18-year-old gender rebel sorting out a kaleidoscope of conflicting advice and desires. Nadia Hluszko - a.k.a. Nate - comes by her confusion and transgender identity honestly: one of her moms used to be her dad; the other is addicted to the Osbornes. First-time documentary director Pamela Gawn chases the irrepressible Nate as she cycles through her part-time job at a used bike shop, suffers girlfriend turmoil, argues with both moms, and reveals a tragedy that changed her family forever. A poignant, sometimes achingly sweet coming of age story. Lynne Fernie
