Tay is a teenage “kathoey” (ladyboy) a member of the relatively well-tolerated transgender group. Kathoey take on traditional female roles, and are sometimes described as a third sex. This documentary follows Tay and observes the acceptance of his orientation at his Christian school Saint Joseph Mueang-Ake. The documentary peers into the daily life of Tay, and those around them to paint a complex observation of how an individual’s gender is articulated in Thai society.
