Indie films are like high school football players, you only hear about the good ones. Princess Cyd is one of those good ones.

For Cyd (Jessie Pinnick) it’s that the world isn’t black and white and that she is free to love anyone, including a young mohawked woman named Katie. For her aunt Miranda (Rebecca Spence) it’s that life isn’t over for her and she shouldn’t be afraid to try new things.
