Australia: Drama, Youth, LGBT 85 mins
A gay disabled teenage boy changes into the body of a beautiful woman, so that he can be loved. Pulse is a deeply personal film, exploring thematic questions such as how much our bodies shape who we are, where is the line between compromising for love and changing yourself to be loved, and why we fall in love with the people we fall in love with. It is a parable film for young people, queer people, disabled people; but more than that, for anyone who has ever struggled with their body, their appearance, their sexuality, their desires, and essentially, themselves.
