Two Spirits interweaves the tragic story of a mother’s loss with a revealing look at a time when the world wasn’t simply divided into male and female genders.

Fred Martinez was nádleehí, a male-bodied person with a feminine nature, a special gift according to his ancient Navajo culture. Yet he was one of the youngest hate-crime victims in modern history when he was brutally murdered at 16.

Two Spirits explores the life and death of this boy who was also a girl, and the spiritual nature of gender.
