The bond is forever, no matter what changes.

When Galit shares her pantyhose with Amit, her husband, to keep his legs warm, the simple act makes Amit unravel his deepest secret - he is a transgender. Encouraging and nurturing as she is, Galit supports Amit's transformation into 'Imit.' But, with it comes turmoil - inside and outside. With their kids facing ridicule in school, and relatives shunning them, Galit is determined to protect and keep her family together at any cost. After Amit's gender reassignment surgery in Thailand, the two women renew their vows in hopes of peaceful life ahead, but another transition is brewing in the horizon. The stunning documentary immerses you in the struggles and joys of the Tsuk family, and connects you with each of them. -Rakesh Bhadang
