"That's my boy", a 24-minute documentary film, takes us through the life of Sonu, who strongly disagrees that his gender is the same as his biological sex. Sonu was born a girl but he always knew that his physical body and mental identity were at odds with each other. Amidst all adverse circumstances and a very poor social background, Sonia flew towards her goal of defining a synergetic relationship between her body and mind, which finally made her a â€˜him', Sonu.
Very carefully, the film conveys transgenders' struggle to lead a normal life against the social stigma attached to them and their fight to be respected for what they are.
