Private Project

Xiaodi (晓迪)

On the 17th birthday of transgender girl Huang Xiaodi, the whole family gathered to celebrate her birthday. After dinner, her parents asked her to get in the car and take her to buy a birthday present. However, what awaited her was not the store, but an "Internet addiction school" on Gele Mountain in Chongqing.

They believed that this would convert Xiaodi and make her a "normal" boy. Trapped in a"private prison", Xiaodi learned to give in. In the face of violence and humiliation, she suffered disgrace to won the trust of instructors. Under her patience, a chance to escape finally came.

在跨性别女孩黄晓迪17岁生日那天,全家人团聚在一起为她庆生。饭后,父母叫她上车,要带她挑选生日礼物。然而,等待她的不是商店,而是位于重庆歌乐山上的一所“网瘾学校”。父母相信,这样能够扭转晓迪,使她成为一个“正常”的男孩子。

身陷“私人监狱”,晓迪学会了屈服。面对暴力和羞辱,她忍辱负重,博取教官的信任。在她的耐心等待下,一个逃跑的机会终于降临。
