Synopsis: 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. She can tell her son the contrary, he can see that she’s gone down a notch. Crap job, tiny flat. and there’s a transgender support group 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. (Released in partnership with UNESCO Chaire Sexual Health & Human Rights).
