She was stunningly good-looking – an international model. But ‘she’ felt like ‘he’. Never comfortable with ‘her’ (as was) body or given name, Kayanna felt from early childhood he was meant to be a boy. Struggling deeply with his identity throughout his youth, he adopted a new name – Krow. At 12-years-old, Krow began a career as a globe-trotting ‘female’ fashion model, but while ‘she’ was living a super-glamorous lifestyle, ‘she’ never felt comfortable, despite the attention and praise lavished on him for his good looks. At school he was seen as a tomboy and cruelly bullied for the way he dressed. Krow found solace in Animé conventions and cosplay, where he found like-minded people who accepted him for who he truly was, or wanted to be. At 18, Krow embarked on the journey towards physically becoming a man. In a series of honest and often heart-breaking interviews, this extraordinary film shows how Krow’s momentous decision affected those closest to him.
Throughout the documentary feature we witness the enormous and ongoing challenges faced by Krow, from the material (his career), psychological and social, to the physical traumas - the hormone therapies and numerous invasive surgical procedures. As Krow slowly grows in confidence in his new body and identity, he bravely attempts to return to his career in the fashion industry taking his first job as a male model on the runway at Paris Fashion Week.
