Husband and wife, Alex and Greg, are approaching a crossroads that is all too familiar to New York City parents – finding the “right” primary school for their son, Jake. Aware that Jake has the potential to be a candidate for a scholarship at a private school, Jake’s preschool director Judy, a trusted friend of the family, encourages Alex to mention Jake’s “gender expansive” play in their applications. Despite some initial misgivings, Alex and Greg take Judy’s advice. But as the process continues, Jake’s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and perplexing, and the question of what’s really going on with Jake starts to create a rift between the two parents.
