Tonga, an island group in the South Pacific, has long considered trans women, known as leitis, an integral part of its culture, often carrying significant social status. But recent Western religious influences have seen their identities being increasingly challenged. This documentary traces their proud cultural history and highlights developments in their struggles against discrimination.  Screens with the short film Lady Eva, which delves further into the story of leiti Eva Baron, one of the subjects of the feature.
