Produced and directed by Patricia Byrne, Berni Kerr's gripping drama explores the journey of a transgender man from a mother's perspective. It charts with empathy, incisiveness and dark humour the impact on their friends and family circle, and the support that is available. It also touches on the mental health care system.
"She Wants to be a What? tells an important message in a human, relatable way teaching us of the complexities of such a subject whilst also underlining the need for more conversation around it." - Derry Journal
