A transexual babysitter masturbates a teenage boy who is in the bathtub. A teenage boy puts his hands down the front of a transexual's skirt and recoils in horror at the mutilated genitals.

The film is about the interplay between gender, sex, and identity. These interrelated concepts are explored through the story of a transsexual's frustrated search for love and authenticity.
