How Ky Turned into Niels

12-year-old Ky is different from her friends as she feels being more of a boy than a girl. Even when she was younger she combed her hair differently and wanted to wear boys’ clothes rather than girls’ clothes. Sterre, a 11-year old girl supports Ky, as she has previously been a boy. In this documentary short Ky and Sterre decide to tell their classmates about their transgender-identity.
