Christian Banas narrates this romantic comedy. Transgender Noah is navigating a new school and a legal name change. Hoping to present as masculine, Noah joins the secret Borrow a Boyfriend Club, through which students can rent a boy as a date. In cold, curt tones, snooty Asher vets potential members, who cannot have a boyfriend or girlfriend. Although Noah scoffs at Asher's attitude and ego, their voices become softer and gentler as mutual feelings develop. Serious topics are handled fittingly: Asher speaks about a robbery near the school in low tones, and Noah's voice shakes as he deals with body dysmorphia. Noah's parents are effusive around his boisterous friends and reserved but supportive about his name change. Noah's confidence grows throughout this honest and upbeat production.
