In Sheona McDonald’s gorgeous film, a mother and child in Yellowknife navigate the complexities of gender identity. Capturing the duo’s journey to acceptance, authenticity and allyship, Into Light ultimately asks, “When a child reveals who they truly are on the inside, how does a parent set aside their own expectations to help them become their most authentic self?”
