Transsexuals — What is it like to feel that you are a man, although you were born with a woman’s body and vice versa ? One person of each sex explains his or her feelings about it, and how they are making the change. We also see a class for men who are learning to live and behave as women before surgery is performed. They have to convince doctors that the operation they so desperately want is necessary and that they can fit in happily as women in society.

Made in 1978 this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The issues raised are timeless.
