A touching story about transsexuality in a time when the subject was taboo.

The 1950s. Paulie has a heavy burden to bear. He rather wants to be a girl. But his father doesn’t like that. He forces his son to wear cowboy-suits and swamps him with boy-toys. Even though Paulie adjusts – he doesn’t want to hurt his parents – Pauline keeps living inside him. In his grandmother he finds a soulmate. She understands his pain. But when Paulie turns 16, the fake double-life becomes too much for him ...
