MOORAT (Idol), dubbed as a taboo subject of ‘intersex’ and ‘transgender’ people who suffer endlessly in silence wrapped in slurs and miseries. A sensitive story that unfolds their deprived and isolated world and yet portrays eloquently how they too are not far away from the human emotions and feelings and their world not much different to ours. Multiple intersex characters played by many intersex and transgender individuals acted along with other professional actors in this TV series.
