A heartfelt drama following the story of a family drawn into crisis after the parents discover their child is a cross-dresser and kick him out of the house. Years later, when the father is dying of cancer, the mother hires a private detective to track him down. Instead of a “son”, the detective finds a woman singing at a gay cabaret. Will parents and daughter manage to overcome the past?

Co-sponsored by Bowdoin Hillel; a collaboration with the Maine Jewish Film Festival.
