14 year-old "J" goes by the pronoun "they" and lives with their parents in the suburbs of Chicago. J is exploring their gender identity while taking hormone blockers to postpone puberty. After two years of medication and therapy, J has to make a decision whether or not to transition.
Over this crucial weekend while their parents are away, J's sister, Lauren, and her maybe/maybe-not Iranian partner, Araz, arrive to take care of J. During this time together, J, Lauren and Araz form an intimate family unit. Each character is in a state of suspension, of being in-between, of not belonging. J voices what all three feel: a reluctance to change, a desire to remain in childhood where innocence is still possible, even as it recedes into the distance. (Drama)
