This documentary confronts us with numerous gender stereotypes focusing on the journey of Jasmin, a transgender boy going through gender transition and being infatuated with roller derby. Roller derby is not just another sport. It is a team game created and played by women and characterized by promotion of physical diversity and inclusivity. An intimate and unusual portrait, taken in vertical video format to give the impression that the audience is face to face with Jasmine at this unique moment of transition.
