Blue, young and gender-queer, awakens through a dusty morning, binding their breasts, and smoking a joint as they watch the world from their window. A chance encounter with party girl Violet leads the pair to the ocean, where Blue watches her take to the waves in a daringly beautiful exhibition of soul-surfing, and the possibility of connection stirs. Beautiful They is a youthful, visually charged, uplifting non-binary love story; a queer surf-romance about the nuance of gender, and the refuge found in being truly seen.
