In this intimate and personal portrait, we follow Paul, a single, straight bus driver of 37, as he undergoes a gender transition to begin living as a woman called Julia. At first glance, Paul comes across as a regular, affable and blockey man with a passion for racing and farming, but inside it is a different story. Despite Paul’s living and looking like a man, Paul has always felt like a woman.
Filmed over a two-year period, this reveling and intimate documentary explores the deconstruction and reconstruction of a person with unflinching humor and surprise, turning upside down all the stereotypes about what makes a man and what makes a woman. Julia gives us an engaging account of a sex change.
Ultimately, this film is not the perfect way to live.
