Gerald is a yuppie-like transvestite in his thirties. His wife arrives home earlier than expected and discovers female attire spread over their apartment. Not knowing anything about his habit, she misinterprets this and throws him (and the attire) out of their home and marriage. He rents a room in Monica's house, recently divorced and around 50. Their relation- ship evolves from landlady/tenant over friends to lovers. Monica learns about, begins to understand and finally appreciates and supports Gerald- ine, Gerald's alter ego. His transvestitism, a rarely filmed subject, it's ups and downs, is treated with a lot of respect, warmth and humour.

All other characters and events are fictitious and any similarity to actual events or persons, living or dead, is coincidental and unintentional." See more
After Gerald and Monica finish having sex he stands up and walks away from the bed. It is briefly seen that he is wearing white boxers, a goof in itself as he was not seen pulling them on after supposedly finishing intercourse. The scene then cuts to a different angle of him walking away from the bed and he is naked. See more
