Eisha Marjara; 2017; Canada; 95 min.

“I’m his father...mother… I’m working that part out.” While transitioning to female and trying to live up to her Indian family’s cultural expectations, Sid discovers she is the father of a teenage son. Her son Ralph (Jamie Mayers) gets more than he expected when he meets his other bio-parent, and Sid discovers Ralph wants to be more Indian than Sid has ever allowed herself to be, whether in terms of music or language or food. Featuring a strong lead performance by Debargo Sanyal (POTTERSVILLE) and set in beautiful Montreal, this crowd-pleasing dramedy is a journey of self-discovery and acceptance.
