18-year-old Ryan is a talented musician and transgender, and began his transition from girl to boy 4 years earlier. He is wildly in love with the beautiful and enigmatic 16-year-old Alexis, but her parents' disapproval of Ryan forces her to choose between her family and an unsafe future with the man she loves. - Production notes.

Songs For Alexis is both educational and inspirational. It's a heartbreaking, yet true account of what it's like to be young and in love when the odds just aren't in your favor. I hope it inspires everyone who watches to never let anything stop you from chasing after the one you love to the moon-and to always, always, always follow love. - Ryan Cassata, Indiewire
