Inspired by a true story, BOY tells the story of Adam Turner, a man who has to deal with the gender cards he's given (not born with). We meet Adam on the night he meets Jenny Lafferty at a drunken Halloween party. Their flirtation and connection increases, but there seems to something that Adam isn't' saying. His story begins to unfold as Jenny learns that Adam is the victim of a botched medical circumcision and was raised as a female by his parents due to council from a popular doctor who posits that nurture can outweigh nature. BOY explores the complicated terrain of trying to find love in a new body, and the inextricable bonds between doctor and patient - creator and creation.
