Trama, Sinossi Episodio
Max, undici anni, si sente da sempre piu' una femmina che un maschio, ma teme il giudizio dei suoi, soprattutto di suo padre.
Sinossi originale: Stephen brings his girlfriend Gemma when he spends the day with his children Lily and Maxine, the latter of whom is currently known as Max and referred to by the characters with pronouns he and him. On her first day at high school, resigned to wearing the male uniform, Maxine wets herself after refusing to use the male toilets. Lily helps her mother Vicky dress for a date, but Maxine urges her to date Stephen instead. As Vicky is about to leave, Lily discovers Maxine has slashed her wrists. In the hospital, Maxine urges Stephen to return home. Talking to a mental health professional, Vicky and Stephen explain that Maxine has wished to wear girl's clothing from the age of five; the doctor recommends them to a gender identity service Ferrybank. Vicky reluctantly allows Stephen to return home when he says he wants to "fix" their "son". Stephen breaks up with Gemma. A flashback shows Stephen slapping Maxine. Maxine discovers a video about trans people online. After dancing with Lily and her friends, Maxine is confronted by bullies, but Lily intervenes. At home, Lily announces that "Max" has bought a girl's uniform and wants to be known as Maxine.
