When former South African beauty queen and amateur craftsperson Sharon Rose Khumalo learns that she is intersex, she begins to explore her own identity. Together with intersex activist Dimakatso Sebidi, she wants to overcome the barriers intersex people face. The two question why society places such a high value on distinct sex characteristics and realize that both of their lives ran parallel and yet are quite unique.

Tünde Skovrán has worked with Sharon and Dimakatso for over four years to give the film a shared form, to give the intersex community a public voice, which is rarely achieved as respectfully and poignantly as it is here.

Content warning: mention of interphobia, discussion of surgeries; depiction of animal killing, religious hate speech
