This documentary tracks the life of Jay Kyle Petersen- from his time in Minnesota where he was raised female to his life in Arizona where he paints soul energy. Told from his point of view, in his own words, this film tackles spirituality, mental illness, gender and sex, happiness, substance abuse, satanic cults, dead pets, and lots of paint.  Jay takes us through haunting memories filled with torment, abuse and struggles with gender identity that ultimately lead down a path of hope and enlightenment.
