Premise: On the eve of the admissions cycle for New York City kindergartens, Alex and Greg Wheeler have high hopes for their son Jake, a bright and precocious four-year-old who happens to prefer Cinderella to GI Joe. Aware they can’t afford private school tuition, the director of Jake’s preschool encourages them to capitalize on Jake’s “gender variant” expression and use it to compete for a scholarship. After all, she argues, private schools are looking for diversity and in 2017 gender-bending is all the rage. But as the admissions process continues, Jake’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic and perplexing. As Alex and Greg struggle to navigate their roles as parents, a rift grows between them, one that forces them to confront their own unspoken fears about Jake and each other.
