Transamerica, a 2005 independent comedy-drama film, tells the story of Stanley who is a perfectly adjusted, conservative transsexual who is about to take the final step to becoming Bree, the woman he always wanted to be. Stanley’s plans are delayed when he finds out that he is the parent of a long-lost 17 year old son who is in trouble with the law. Afraid to tell the rebellious teen-ager the truth, Stanley meets the boy and they embark on a cross-country journey that will challenge and change both their lives.
