Sixteen year olds Palani and Karthik want to become 'ladyboys.' They're bullied in school and beaten by their families. Their parents would like to see them grow up as normal boys, but they're falling deeper and deeper into the world of the 'Aravanis'. Loved as dance performers but hated as homosexuals, their stories emblazon the inner conflicts of India's gender culture today.
