Meet Maya Jafer (formerly Mohammed): a Tamil, Muslim originally from Chennai, India. Incredibly accomplished, Maya has two doctorates in holistic medicine and a successful professional career in Los Angeles. Jeff Roy’s intimate documentary follows one year in her life as she travels to Thailand to undergo sexual reassignment surgery. Throughout her transition, Maya battles to redefine her spiritual and cultural devotion, and to maintain her faith. A perceptive and engaging take on modern rites of passage, and the difficulties of letting go and starting new again.
