Summary
Trans is an extraordinary documentary feature film about men and women... and all the variations in between. It is an up-close and very personal journey into the transgender world through the memorable stories and the unusual lives of a remarkable cast of characters. Here we will explore the Transgender Community, perhaps the most misunderstood and mistreated minority in America and around the world. It begins with the story of Lt. Commander Christopher McGinn, a Navy flight surgeon selected by NASA to serve on two space missions. But, upon his discharge from the armed forces, Chris McGinn would set out upon a different mission...from which he was never to return. Now Dr. Christine McGinn is able to tell her own amazing story, (picked up in the media on both MSNBC and the Oprah Winfrey show) and provide an entrée into a complex and dramatic world that is "Trans." Some of the stories include Danaan, a 7 year old MTF (male to female) who knew who she was at 2 years old and has spent the rest of her short life making believers out of her parents and the rest of her world; Cris, who has only recently come to the realization that he is transgendered and is about to break the news to his lesbian girlfriend that he is not a lesbian; Pam and Erica, who have never met before now, but they have been living the same lie for over 50 years. Now, in their mid 50s, they are undergoing transgender surgery and are about to risk everything to be able to live as their authentic selves. We learn the tragic story of Chloe, who graduated High School and left her small town with her best friend to live in a place where she could start life anew and experience the freedom and excitement of living her authentic self. There she collided with the fear that every trans person must struggle to overcome just to survive. These are the stories of boys and girls, men and woman...and all the shades in between. These are stories that will open both the mind and the heart. Stories of extraordinary people who face fear, discrimination, ignorance and violence in the hopes they might one day be able to live...ordinary lives. To anyone who ever looked in a mirror and wondered, "Who they really are?" Trans asks another question..."are you brave enough to find out?"
