Mutt follows Feña, a 25-year-old Chilean-American trans guy, over the course of 24 hours as he prepares for his estranged father’s visit to NYC. After bumping into and spending the night with his straight cisgender ex, he goes to work the next morning and finds his 13-year-old sister waiting for him. Having been banned from communicating by their mother, the two have not seen each other in over a year. Guilty and running on fumes, Feña allows her to join him on his hectic day as he attempts to mend the relationships he left behind after coming out as transgender.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
