Synopsis

16-year-old Billie's reluctant path to independence is accelerated when her mother reveals plans to gender transition and their time together becomes limited to Tuesday afternoons. Filmed over the course of a year, once a week, every week - only on Tuesdays - these unique filmmaking rules bring a rare authenticity to this emotionally charged exploration of desire, responsibility and transformation.

"A groundbreaking new film." HUFFINGTON POST

"A remarkably assured and striking debut." SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

"This accessible narrative experiment boast breakout talent in front of and behing the camera." VARIETY
