    • Synopsis
    • SID is under pressure to marry a nice Indian girl and raise a family. Sid’s East Indian mother yearns to have grandchildren. Her dreams are about to come true, but not in the way she could've ever imagined.

      When Sid comes out as a woman, a 14 year old boy named RALPH shows up at her door and announces that Sid is his dad. Ralph, surprised to discover that his father is now a woman, thinks it's pretty cool. But Ralph hasn't told his mother and step dad that he’s tracked down his biological father.

      Sid’s coming out has a snowball effect. What happens when gender, generations and cultures collide to create a truly modern family?
