Movie Info

A sensitive Englishman experiences an intense sexual identity crisis after realizing he is a man trapped in a woman's body. The only time Roy (Anne Heywood) feels truly comfortable is when he's wearing women's clothing. But when Roy's cruel father catches him dressed up like a lady, the conflicted young man escapes to a place where he can be safe, and fully embraces his female persona. Now living under the name Wendy, he suffers a harrowing encounter with a vicious new neighbor who beats him mercilessly after discovering his sexual secret. In the wake of that brutal attack, Wendy decides that his only option is to rid himself of his troublesome manhood once and for all. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore
