Changing The Game
5 O’CLOCK DOC–

For young transgender athletes, the sport they love often turns into a minefield of controversy. Decried as cheaters if they excel or barred from competing among the gender they identify with; positive outcomes are rare. But when a sport is a lifeline, what is fair? This exceptional film mines that question through intimate portraits of three trans athletes who offer us the opportunity to see the world through their eyes — and share their struggles and successes along the way.
