Bree Osbourne, formerly Stanley Osbourne, is a [[{{transsexual}} transwoman]] with a week before her big operation. However, she soon discovers that she has a son named Toby. Her psychiatrist, upon hearing of this, refuses to grant her consent for the surgery and forces her to connect to Toby. Thus begins a rather interesting road trip from Los Angeles to New York and back again.

Although some consider it to be decent, many people in the transgender spectrum accuse the film of being stereotypical about its portrayal of transsexuals; so if you don't know much about transsexuals, you should be cautious about watching this. But it's not a ''negative'' portrayal and any portrayal ''at all'' is a big step up from the recognition transgender people usually get in the media, which is "none at all".

* {{Fanservice}}: Kevin Zegers (Toby) gets naked several times, to the point that his body could be considered the third main character. The Peyote Shaman offers some great views too, including a full fontral. By contrast we also see [[{{Fandisservice}} Bree's penis]].
