Twitter Capsule: Moving documentary about Hawai'ian transgender māhū maintaining a culture and a marriage. Impressively multi-sided views.

VOR:   In formal terms, I wouldn't call this a groundbreaking documentary, but aside from its rare insight into Pacific legacies of transgender, it's a sharp film on cultural conflict, generational divides.
