Alex, a transgender youth, has been struggling with a secret pregnancy. However, time has run out for him and he must confess his condition to Jesse, his live-in boyfriend. Although they struggle in poverty, through their love and passion for one another, it’s clear they have forged a home together. To Alex’s surprise, Jesse offers a strikingly opposing view on how to deal with the pregnancy. Alex considers what he is willing to lose in order to live honestly and courageously.
