French artist HollySiz invites listeners on a journey of parental love in her new music video for her single 'The Light.'

HollySiz, a French indie rocker better known as actress Cecile Cassel, recently released the music video for her single "The Light" off of her new album My Name Is. The heartbreaking-meets-heartwarming video depicts a couple with a young gender-nonconforming child they're raising as a boy.

The child is teased in school for wearing a dress but appears nonetheless content to simply be himself. But when he comes home and plays with his My Little Pony toys, he's reprimanded by his father and eventually forced to abandon his dress despite his mother's support.

Behind the images, HollySiz's lyrics urge the father and the listeners alike to accept the child, saying, "Let us grow / Let's believe we can change / Let's believe in ourselves." Faced with his son's devastation, the father must decide whether to heed social prescriptions or embrace his child.

Watch "The Light" below.
