HBO Max’s Sort Of chronicles the story of Sabi Mahboob, a transgender teenager in a large Pakistani family. Over the last season, the show has displayed Sabi as a bartender, and bookseller, and recently striving to fulfil his responsibilities relating to his family.

With an addition of new faces, Sort Of continues to investigate the real meaning of friends, family, love, and life at large.”
