A Documentary Film By Sam Hampton

The story of  Zo and the Thorpe family supports the current paradigm shift of transgender individuals being accepted more largely in society, and to address a broader understanding that these rights are rights for all individuals. The film is part of the emerging movement of transgender individuals telling their stories, a group that is still largely unseen, unheard and underrepresented.
