ITV is about to screen a brand new drama, Butterfly which focuses on issues surrounding a transgender child and their family.
Butterfly is a heartfelt and sensitive drama about a complex family situation, a child who feels that their gender identity is different from the one chosen at birth.
When their 11-year-old, Max (Callum Booth-Ford), experiences increasingly distressing feelings around gender, separated parents, Vicky (Anna Friel) and Stephen (Emmett J. Scanlan) attempt to work together. But with both parents divided, will Max find the courage to identify as a girl and express herself as Maxine?
Will Maxine’s family be able to accept her for who she really is?
