Growing up in 1950s England in an intolerant and uninformed world, young Chris Winters struggles to fit into the gender roles dictated by wider society. A more than tough childhood left behind, Chris meets dream woman Julie, and life lightens a little, but the growing feeling that their life is a life half lived haunts Chris, who is torn by ‘what ifs’. Chris imagines what might have been, and is finally struck by the realisation that for some decisions there is no right answer, and that it’s those that truly define us.
Starring trans actors in both cis and trans roles, ‘Dusk’ is the award winning trans short that stormed the festival circuit in 2017/2018, screening at 87 festivals internationally.
