Inspired by the life of Adam Kashmiry, Adam tells the remarkable story of a young trans man and his struggle across genders and borders to be himself. Adam Kashmiry performs, as himself. Born into a deeply conservative society, Adam was assigned female at birth but always knew he was a boy. Trapped with no way to describe this feeling, in a place where falling in love with the wrong person can get you killed, he knew he had to escape. Written by Frances Poet, directed by Cora Bissett and Louise Lockwood, this hour-long screen drama is reworked from an original stage drama.
