In Indonesia, there lives a unique community of men who live openly as women. Known as Warias, these individuals must balance their identity with intimacy, and their Islamic faith. In this eye-opening documentary, four Warias tell the tales of their search for companionship and someone to love.

WHEN HAINAN MEETS TEOCHEW
Yew Kwang Han | 81min | Singapore | Mandarin, Hainanese, Teochew dialect w/ES

An argument over a missing bra results in Ms. Teochew, a “womanly” man, having to move in with Hainan-boy, a “manly” woman. Not your typical romance, the unusual pair grows closer as they face an angry landlord, an estranged father, a sickly mother, and a crazy ex-girlfriend. Could this be the start of a beautiful relationship?
