Documentary


Prominent East Coast independent filmmaker and seemingly consummate "guy's guy" Joe O'Ferrell has something to tell the people around him. Loading up his cameras in order to catch it all on tape, Joe turns to his crew and matter-of-factly reveals to them that he'd led a secret life as a woman on numerous occasions throughout his life and that he now intends to become a woman, full-time. Thus the journey begins as Joe - who would soon change his name to Michelle Ann Farrell - prepares to undergo the first of a series of feminizing surgeries and treatments to transform his body into that of an attractive woman. Michelle quickly realizes that the physical alterations can be all but a piece of cake compared to the momentous task of re-introducing herself as her feminine persona to everyone she knows - including those people who have come to identify her for sometimes decades as a son, buddy, talented cinematographer, national hockey champion, and ultimately a male role model, who out of the very depths of a life mired in drugs, made something much more of his life.
