+ Q&A with director Eisha Marjara.

An award-winning, laugh-out-loud comedy about alternative family values, self-empowerment and love.

Sid is a Montreal Punjabi, who after years of struggling with their gender identity has decided to come out as a woman. Other than Sid’s mom crying a lot, all seems to be moving in the right direction, that is until a 14-year-old boy turns up and insists that Sid is his long-lost dad from a teenage affair.

Shocked – obviously, Sid’s world rapidly spirals out of orbit as Sid attempts to nurture this latch-on teenager who thinks having a transgender Dad is “cool”, an in-the-closet partner and an about to combust Punjabi mom.

Part of Bagri Foundation Birmingham Indian Film Festival (BIFF).
