Synopsis

One of the first things transexuals ask today is that we stop talking for them. This is precisely what the filmmaker Gwen Haworth has done. Using interviews, animation, old family footage, and voice mail, Gwen Haworth documents her male-to-female gender transition partially through the voices of her anxious but loving family, best friend, and wife. Haworth's feature debut is a comic, heartbreaking, and uplifting autobiography that breaks away from the marginalized depictions of transsexuals that populate mainstream media and focuses on the interpersonal relationships of a family who unexpectedly find their bonds strengthening as they overcome their preconceptions of gender and sexuality.
