A transgender teen on the spectrum learns to be himself with the help of their own original animated characters in Who I Am, a new documentary now available to stream on 10 Play.
After being bullied at school, 14-year-old Charlie (they/them and he/him) finally comes out to their mum, setting him on a path of navigating the first steps of his transition – the social transition.
Over three years we watch them come out to family, make it through lockdown, meet new friends, find inclusive healthcare, and ultimately settle into their identity with the new name Aether.
Meanwhile, their mum Anthea goes on her own journey to embracing her child for all that he is.
Told through observational moments, intimate reflections from the whole family, including younger siblings Hayley and William who are also Autisitic, and Aether’s own original animated characters, The Fallens, coming to life, Aether begins their new chapter, learning to be comfortable in their own skin no matter what other people think.
