SOFT follows three adolescent queer friends living in the underbelly of Toronto, each reveling in the newfound freedom of their summer break. Julien, a runaway, has been taken in by Dawn, a trans woman who has adopted the role of guiding him through the challenges of being a young queer carving out a place for himself in the world. Julien, alongside his youthful gang, is determined to sneak into a local gay club this summer, yearning to experience the wonders beyond its forbidden walls. Otis, a timid boy, follows Julien with intrigue and adoration for his effortless irreverence, while Tony, a young trans girl, rounds out the group with her bright spirit and optimism.
After stealing the wallet of a man Dawn seems to know intimately, Julien, Otis and Tony succeed in their nightlife mission. However, when Dawn fails to return home later that night, the trio band together to find her whereabouts. Untrusting of authority, they hatch a plan to confront the man whose wallet they stole, ultimately setting fire to the double life he leads. As Julien sinks deeper and deeper into his guilty, a brutal discovery reveals how much darker the journey for truth really is.
