Synopsis

Sherent, a Two Spirit Genderqueer teenager from Rhode Island's Narragansett tribe performs in dance competitions at annual regional powwows of New England tribes. There is no formal rule which prohibits Two Spirit Genderqueer people from competing in a category different from their birth gender. Wearing female fancy shawl regalia, Sherent dances with joy and beauty. Behind the scenes, tribal leaders manipulate Sherent's scores or disqualify them outright because of their belief in traditional binary gender roles. Blindsided by ongoing dishonesty and deception, Sherent continues to perform in spite of insensitive behavior by tribal leaders and others in their community. Sherent's enduring courage and self-respect are met with an outpouring of support from family, powwow attendees, and fellow competitors.
