Nabi, a veteran fire officer, accepts the coming out from her child Hankyeol, “I want to remove my breasts.” Meanwhile, Vivian, a flight crew, receives a letter from her son Yejoon, “Mom, I’m gay.” Hankyeol and Yejoon confide in their struggles even before the two mothers understand their reality.
Coming to you is a warm and heartfelt documentary that embraces both gender minorities and their parents. The main characters of this film are Hankyeol, an FTM transgender, and his mother Nabi, and Yejoon, who is gay, and his mother Vivian. Slowly and thoroughly, the film shows the process in which the two mothers came to accept their children as they are after they came out. Even amidst confusion, the two mothers recognize their children’s identities and make their utmost efforts to bring about a happy future for them. They attend meetings for the Parents and Families of LGBTAIQ People in Korea and give courage to other parents who have been unable to overcome fear and anxiety. The documentary lends the microphone to the soft voices of the mothers who persistently and calmly advise Korean society to embrace minorities. This film is also an achievement that was made possible by director Byun Gyuri, who stayed by their side for years. (MOON Seok)
