Oakland-based documentary, Mariposa, follows the challenges of Castro, a masculine-of-center, high school teacher, becoming pregnant and growing a family with her wife Candy. Castro is overwhelmed with anxiety about how becoming pregnant will shift her masculine presentation. Together they confront the many physical, emotional, and societal obstacles they encounter on their journey of trying to conceive as a queer couple.
