John Giretti, Andrew Sklar), while Landline (UK, 12 min., Matt Houghton) explores the impact of a helpline for gay farmers set up by a chaplain in Cheshire, England. Before heading into irreversible surgery, a man reflects on his previous female identity in Almost Liam (Israel, 28 min., Sapir Rokach).
