‘Gender Is’ is a film about gender confusion. Gabriel, a girl in her early teens, is suddenly misgendered by a pair of teens. This gives her the inspiration to experiment and explore the concept of Gender with the support of her friend, who shows her the harmful impacts of a society with gender roles, and the thrill of breaking the norms.
