Synopsis

Joëlle is not your average father. Her life is in full reconstruction after a sex reassignment, when her son suddenly leaves the family home in Montreal and follows her to New York. She's not ready to play the doting father. He 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. It's emotional swings and roundabouts which won't leave you the same person.
