Synopsis

Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman was Oscar nominated for her role as 'Bree', a transsexual who is one snip away from making her transformation from a man to a woman complete. Complications soon arise when Bree is confronted with the news that in a past heterosexual encounter he fathered a son, Toby, whose drug use and rent boy life-style have landed him in trouble with the law.

Fearing her son's reaction Bree poses as a Christian case-worker, leading him on a mutual voyage of self discovery. This is a beautifully acted tale of acceptance that perfectly balances whimsy, hilarity and charm.
