The murder of a 16-year-old Navajo youth is the subject of this documentary. The man who beat Fred Martinez to death boasted that he'd 'bug-smashed a fag’. But Fred saw him/herself as a two-spirit person, inhabited by both masculine and feminine spirits, as indigenous North Americans have long accepted and honoured. The moving testimony of Fred's mother sits at the centre of an impassioned and thoughtful movie, already an award-winner and word-of-mouth hit on the festival circuit.
