16-year-old Billie’s reluctant path to independence is accelerated when her mother reveals plans for gender transition and their time together becomes limited to Tuesday afternoons. Filmed over the course of a year, once a week, every week – only on Tuesdays – these unique filmmaking rules bring a rare authenticity to this emotionally charged story of desire, responsibility and transformation.
“One can’t fail to be impressed with the film’s commitment to investigate its issues with subtlety and frankness.” Leslie Felperin, The Guardian.
