This debut documentary from Jason Barker tells the incredible true story of how he came to give birth to his child, charting over 15 years of his and his partner's life.

Assembled entirely from home footage that Barker and his partner Tracey shot themselves, this is a warm, funny and disarmingly candid film that offers a new perspective on trans stories, provides intimate insights into the complexities of gender identity and new parenthood.

Director Jason Barker will be here for a Q&A after the Sun 28 April 14:00 screening, hosted by Henry Poultney, LGBTQ+ activist.
