An exceptionally fresh, intimate and candid documentary about being young – and trans

ALWAYS AMBER chronicles three years in the lives of Amber and Sebastian, two young trans friends living in Stockholm. The two of them are inseparable, supporting each other through transition and everyday life, but when they both fall in love with the same person, their friendship starts to crumble. Featuring music from ShitKid and an exceptionally charismatic title character, ALWAYS AMBER is a funny, charming and intensely relatable film about being young and trying to figure out who you are.
