A chaotic night as a cabbie with less than ideal customers; tackling grief directly and learning to move on; reuniting with distanced family and dealing with the revelations that follow; and an insight into a magical queer existence. These stories celebrate the freedom of gender expression and difference, our main protagonists are trans but the experiences of family, work, and identity are universal.
