Los Angeles Premiere!
2017, Wolfe Video, 95 min, Canada, Dir: Eisha Marjara
At once hilarious and serious, smart and sassy, Eisha Marjara’s articulate, absorbing and lively gender-shifting comedy is the witty tale of Sid (New York-based actor Debargo Sanyal, in a brilliant performance), a transitioning woman whose life takes a turn when a 14-year-old boy named Ralph (Jamie Mayers) arrives at her door with the surprising announcement that he is her son. While Sid is stunned by this news, Ralph meanwhile is equally surprised to discover he has a trans “father” as he is intrigued at the sheer coolness of it. Suddenly, Sid must ponder the consequences of this profound news and share it with her Indian-Canadian parents and with Daniel (Pierre-Yves Cardinal), the love of her life. Just when she thought transitioning was complicated, Sid quickly learns that she ain’t seen nothing yet!
