A moving and intimate portrait of 26-year-old Madison as she transitions over three years from male to female, tracking her emotional, spiritual and physical journey of self-discovery. Advising her on all things feminine is Madison’s glamorous 80-year-old grandmother, Vivien – with at times hilarious results – resulting in two vastly different experiences of womanhood. A thoughtful exploration of gender, femininity and sexuality.
Produced in association with TVO, Knowledge Network & the Canadian Television Fund.
“Gallus’s investment in Madison’s journey returns emotional gold.”
