Laurence and his girlfriend Fred have been together for two years and love each other unconditionally. They’re young and enjoy life to the full. Then Laurence confesses that he feels trapped in the wrong body and would prefer to live as a woman. This would not, however, change his feelings for Fred. She for her part doesn’t know if her love for him would survive such a change. All she knows is that she doesn’t want to live without Laurence. Together, they fight the obstacles, prejudices and their own doubts and embark on a journey that could cost them more than they anticipate.
