Over the course of one bustling New York City day, a young trans guy named Feńa weathers the challenges of his present moment while relationships that define his past and future intercede. From late night encounters with past lovers, to the drudgery of hungover shifts, to surprising visits with family, Feña manages the upheaval of transition with stunning complexity and complete authenticity. The sometimes skillful, sometimes fumbling, and always honest journey captures the challenges of navigating otherness — of trans life, of Latinx life, of human life — and reminds us how many answers can be found when we turn towards each other.

This directorial debut by Vuk Lungulov-Klotz premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where Lío Mehiel won a Special Jury Prize for Performance. Mutt has gone on to play in Generations at the Berlin Film Festival and New Directors/New Films by The Museum of Modern Art and Film at Lincoln Center.
