Southern Californian Bree Osbourne, formerly Stanley Chupak, has finally received the news for which she has been waiting: she has been approved for male-to-female sexual reassignment surgery. But before Margaret, her therapist, will allow her to go through with the surgery scheduled in a week's time, Bree has to deal with an unresolved problem from her past.

I am so glad I had the opportunity to see this film last night, and I truly hope that a distributor was in the audience because this film should be seen by the masses. I would buy it in a heartbeat if were available on DVD.

Have a great day,
