Bree is a highly educated, conservative,
transsexual woman who passes as a G.G. (a genetic
girl), living in a poor section of Los Angeles and
working two jobs to save money for her final sexual
reassignment surgery. When she receives a phone
call from Toby, a jailed teenage runaway looking
for his father, she's shocked to discover that a
heterosexual encounter during her life as a man
resulted in a son. Bree wants no part of Toby, but
her therapist insists she must confront her past,
and withholds legal permission for Bree's final
operation until she has met the boy. Bee grudgingly
dips into her precious operation fund and flies
to New York to bail Toby out of jail.
Released to her without explanation, Toby assumes
from Bree's conservative appearance that she's a
Christian missionary who rescues street people and
converts them to Jesus. Not ready for parenthood,
Bree seizes her chance and encourages Toby's misconception.
When she learns that the rebellious, disheveled
Toby intends to skip bail and hitchhike to L.A.
to break into X-rated videos and search for his
real father, Bree panics. She doesn't want him to
interfere with her plans for a safe, quiet new life.
She offers him a ride cross-country, secretly plotting
to abandon him with the stepfather he ran away from.
As each lies to and manipulates the other, Bree
and Toby find themselves on an unexpected and transformative
