From a young age, 11-year-old son, Max, has identified as a girl and as puberty looms, he begins to present increasing signs of gender variance. When Max was eight, his father, Stephen, left the family home. But as Max's conviction that he's in the wrong body intensifies, his distress escalates, and Stephen seizes the opportunity to return to live at the family home and support his son. However differently Max's parents feel about their child potentially being transgender, they agree on one thing, Max's welfare is paramount. What unfolds for all the family members involved is the greatest challenge and test of love and understanding imaginable. The social transitioning of Max to Maxine is initially thwarted because of the clear division of opinion between Vicky and Stephen.

The real-life woman, played by Anna Friel in this drama, took her 16 year old son to Thailand to be castrated. Call me old-fashioned but in my book that is not something to be celebrated.
One of the best and most inspirational dramas of recent times.
Even though it’s short, this series is incredibly powerful, moving and inspirational. While it’s obviously not going to be for everyone’s liking, it will if you’ve ever faced prejudice, homophobia, bullying or self-harm. It’s not afraid to tackle a very real issue facing countless LGBTQ+ kids around the world. Top writing and acting, especially young Callum Booth-Ford who plays Max/Maxine. He convincingly pulls-off a vulnerable performance as a boy who so desperately wants to be a girl. If this show doesn’t make you want to cry and fight for trans rights, I don’t know what will!
