Pierre, a cross-dressing and eyeliner-wearing teenager, is stunned to discover that he was kidnapped from his cradle by the woman he’s called mother his entire life. When she is whisked away to jail, Pierre must deal with the consequences of her actions. He takes up his new life with his wealthy biological family, whose expectations of their missing son he may never be able to meet. Director Anna Muylaert (The Second Mother) keeps the action almost exclusively glued to Pierre’s viewpoint, turning a potentially bleak subject into a warmhearted study of genetics, gender, and the true meaning of home.
