In New York, a son finds his transgender father

– a medium length film violently delicate.

Joëlle is not your average father. When her son suddenly turns up in NY just when her life is in full reconstruction after a sex reassignment, she’s not ready to play the doting father. Her son can see that she’s gone down a notch. Crap job, tiny flat. and there’s a transgender support group that meets there. She can’t take being constantly scrutinized, questioned and judged by every Tom, Dick and Harry. Her son’s arrival might just be the last straw.
