This movie is fantastic. It's even better than I thought it would be. It's about a pre-op transsexual woman who finds out she fathered a son without knowing it. The boy's mother is dead, and the boy is in jail on the other side of the country. Her therapist refuses to give her the go-ahead on her surgery until she deals with her son. So she gets on a plane to New York and ends up driving the boy cross-country. They get to know each other very well on the trip, and eventually the boy finds out that the woman driving him is his mother (he thought she was a missionary). It's a wonderful movie about in-between places, wilderness experiences as my pastor called it this morning. It's a story about a journey. It is a fantastic movie, and I highly recommend it.
