ABOUT THE FILM
Ulysses is a shy and effeminate boy who finds himself coping with new responsibilities as man of the house after the death of his father.
Living alongside his mother, younger brother, and conservative aunt, Ulysses is also struggling with questions about his gender identity. He finds an escape by creating a world of fantasy filled with dance and music. Ulysses’ journey takes a turn for the better when he finds a vibrant transgender community.
