Synopsis

14-year-old Adam has been living in a bubble as a rowdy, marginalised, withdrawn but creative, passionate and curious teen. When puberty hits and blood suddenly stains his shorts, his desires and identity emerge, as he finds himself facing the unknown, whilst his religious parents, doctrinal physicians and even his free-spirited friend battle with their own prejudices. Metamorphosis is the first Philipino film to focus on the experience of being an intersex person. This coming-of-age film addresses the topic with poetry, and offers a vibrant, realistic and sensual immersion in the universe of this terribly endearing teenager.
