Synopsis

Suzan was born with both male and female sex organs. When she was 5 months old, her parents decided she would be a female. She learnt about it only at the age of 35. Ofer was born intersexual, too, but his parents decided against surgery and accepted him the way he was born. Is there a right to be an intersex? Most people don't think so. Suzan and Ofer are on a mission to change it.
