When Sherry and Larry find each other, a romance fit for a storybook begins. They get married, buy a house, and settle into their new found happiness. Then, one day, a peculiar woman informs Sherry that her happily ever after will grow by one: a son! Nine months later, it’s not a boy but a girl who appears, adding so much joy to their fanciful life…until she doesn’t. At 10 years old she proclaims that she is not a she at all. The admission leaves Sherry and Larry reeling, feeling as though they’ve lost their only child. Will they find the courage to live beyond the classic narrative and write a new story… one of love and acceptance?

Themes: gender identity, family, finding yourself

Advisory: Frank treatment of Trans gender identity.
