A wonderfully honest film. Sad and amusing at the same time. Felicity Kendall Huffman perfectly conveys the hard life of a trans woman who is confronted shortly before her final operation with her son, of whom she didn’t know anything until then. Thereupon, we experience a road trip of a different kind, which has a long lasting effect. Many abstruse situations take place at any time in a very loving setting. The whole thing is accompanied by a very catchy soundtrack. Very good and therefore a recommendation for all those who like to think outside the social norm.
