Candid portrait of five young people who feel like a man nor a woman. How do they experience the curiosity and ignorance? An unbiased invitation to liberate your mind about gender.

'Do you feel like a man or a woman?' A simple question to an outsider, but to these five young people who get it all the time it’s a tough one to answer. They feel male nor female, but something in between. Can’t they just be proud of who they are, without pidgeonholing themselves? In this group portrait, they tell their stories candidly and without any grand statements. About themselves, and about the curiosity and ignorance they run into. Wouldn’t it be liberating if we could breach the rigid gender frameworks?
