Background

Newsom's inspiration for making the film came from becoming pregnant with her son. In an interview she said, "It was really important to me that I could nurture a son who could be true to his authentic self, who wouldn't always feel like he had to prove his masculinity. There's so much loneliness, pain, and suffering when one is pretending to be someone that they're not." Newsom raised $101,111 on Kickstarter towards making the film.
