Storyline

Shlomo who discovers in his son's Assaf room, women's clothing and accessories, decides to 'teach the boy a lesson'. When Assaf returns to his parents' home on a rainy night from a party, his attempts to enter home fail. His father, with the silent consent of his mother, locked the door. At present, 4 years later, Gallia turns to an investigation agency to help her find her son Assaf and bring him to Shlomo, his father who is dying of cancer. One night, at a night club in Tel Aviv, Assaf is seen performing as a beautiful transgender lady singer who goes by the name of Anna. After a few days a private nurse turns up at Shlomo's room at the hospital, sent as she claims by the insurance agency to assist Shlomo. The nurse is Anna (his son Assaf) and she manages to conquer Shlomo's heart by her charming personality and her special attitude toward life. Written by Anonymous

Outstanding in every way
29 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

A person doesn't adopt the alternative lifestyle of being transsexual or homosexual, anymore than does a heterosexual or a hermaphrodite.

I did not get to choose ... and don't know anyone who did.

Most transsexuals are not accepted by their family and friends - so they go off into a new life and find new friends who did not know them as males (or females, if transitioning to male). Even telephone calls become less and less often since most cannot pull off a female-sounding voice or cadence of speech.

I miss my friend very much - and stay in touch and accept her few and far between emails. It's good to know she's OK and happy.

This is a movie for all to see -- especially people who want to have children and parents who have children who might be different.

I will purchase the DVD of this movie as soon as it comes out. It's an amazing story - and well acted. A must-see! I've seen it only twice, so far.
