Shot in Toronto and packed with original music from five up-and-coming YYZ artists — including Haviah Mighty and Säye Skye — this classic coming-of-age narrative is anything but derivative. It tells the story of Sabi, a 25-year-old nanny, bartender and the youngest child of a Pakistani family who is brimming with ennui for their life thus far — until a fateful accident changes everything. Injected with tasteful sarcasm and heartwarming moments aplenty, Sort Of makes waves with one of the first non-binary leads on North American network TV.
