Roobha, a young South Asian trans woman, struggles with the issue of gender identity, and is apprehensive that her conservative family will not understand her. Finally, she gathers courage to confront them, and is promptly ostracized. Unable to make a decent living, she walks the streets of Toronto. Shortly, she musters up a clientele. One night, she is assaulted by a homophobic group. She recovers with the help of her transgender friends. A few weeks later, while dancing at a pub she is harassed by some men. The pub owner, Anthony, comes to her rescue, and throws the thugs out. Anthony and Roobha are inexplicably drawn towards each other, and a rapturous romance ensues. However, Anthony's familial affiliation, failing health, and final death throws Roobha into a conundrum once again.

INDIECAN ENTERTAINMENT is a Canadian distribution company that services not just up-and-coming Canadian filmmakers, but also those indies making films in a lower budget bracket who have otherwise virtually no chance to shine in a market of big studios, distributors and exhibitors.

“Seeing Canadian films should become a regular occurrence and not a one-time event. We need to not only support Canadian production but also encourage the viewing of Canadian films by Canadian audiences. We owe it to our industry, our culture and our country.” — Avi Federgreen
