16-year-old Billie’s reluctant path to independence is accelerated when her mother, James, reveals plans for gender transition. After being sent to live with her father, their time together becomes limited to Tuesday afternoons. As James transitions and becomes less emotionally available, Billie explores her own identity and sexuality, testing the limits of her own power, desire and independence. 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.
