“That’s My Boy”, a documentary portrays the life of Sonu, who strongly disagrees to believe that his gender is the biological one. Sonu was born a girl but he always knew that his physical body and mental identity were at odds with each other. Amidst all adverse circumstances and a very poor social background Sonia flew towards her goal of defining a synergetic relationship between her body and mind, which finally made her a ‘him’, Sonu.*
