Winner of the Hot Docs 2018 Audience Award, Michael Del Monte’s documentary is a remarkable portrait of the journey to self-acceptance. As a father, ex-Marine and world-record weightlifter, Matt "Kroc" Kroczaleski was a poster boy for masculine body image. But in 2015, he was publicly outed as transgender—and quickly dropped by sponsors, banned from competing and renounced by his parents. With his dual-life behind him, Matt faces his greatest feat of strength to date: becoming a woman. With intimate access, we follow her transition to Janae—but it’s her emotional transformation that’s truly the heart of this under-the-radar gem.

Presented in partnership with the Mosaic Institute.
