Growing Up Coy follows a landmark civil-rights case in Colorado, where a 6-year-old transgender girl named Coy has been banned from the girls’ bathroom at school. Coy’s parents hire a lawyer to fight against discrimination, and the family is thrust into the international media spotlight, causing their lives to be changed forever. As states across the U.S. battle with this particular issue, Eric Juhola’s timely film asks a universal question that every parent may face: how far would you go to fight for your child’s rights?
