Freddy, a young British trans man, dreams of becoming a father. Knowing full well the complications and hardships of attempting pregnancy, Freddy moves forward on his road to having a child. Over three years, the emotional, mental and physical toll rises as he and his partner face the heartache of unsuccessful attempts. But with every roadblock testing his spirit and drive, Freddy still clings determinedly to hope. The process also has him look back and reflect on his own upbringing through old photos and home movies. Raised mostly by his mother, who remains a supportive presence in his life, he struggles with how to break the news to his absentee father. Through lyrical storytelling and incredibly intimate access, we experience a story both familiar and unfamiliar: the passion, the pain and the love it takes to become a father.
