Transamerica

by Duncan Tucker International Feature Film / Competition

Bree, a educated transsexual woman lives in a poor section of Los Angeles, working two jobs to save money for her final sexual reassignment surgery. When she receives a phone call from Toby, a jailed teenage runaway looking for his father, she’s shocked to discover that a fumbling heterosexual encounter during her life as a man resulted in a son. Bree’s instinct is to turn her back on the past but her therapist insists she must confront it, withholding legal permission for Bree’s final operation until she has met the boy. The disparate couple takes a long and unexpected journey.
