Event Information

Monica, a transgender woman, returns home to the Midwest to care for her ailing mother, Eugenia, who disowned her twenty years ago. Eugenia, fearing death is near, is abrupt and abrasive, but finds comfort from the arrival of her daughter, whose identity she is not told, and young grandchildren.

Monica still resents how she was once treated but cannot help but feel tenderness for her ill mother. As Eugenia slowly works out who Monica is, the two women begin to repair their broken relationship in a moving, moody and stylish drama.
