Leaving the model of roughies and nudie cuties, Doris Wishman directs a documentary (with situational dramatisations) that focuses on the lives of transgender people, speaking to folks like Deborah Hartin, transgender rights activist, and Dr. Leo Wollman, who assisted the transition of several people and wrote the first care protocols in these cases, among others.
