Arriving with buzz and adoring critical acclaim from Sundance and Cannes, Sean Baker’s (Starlet) fifth feature – shot on an iPhone – charts a Christmas Eve in the life of Sin-Dee and her best friend Alexandra, two transsexual women.

After hearing that Sin-Dee’s boyfriend/pimp cheated on her while she was in jail (and with a ‘fish’ – their term for a biological woman) they set out on a rampage through Tinseltown to find him and teach him and his new lover a lesson.

Foul-mouthed and explicit, the two leads have a wonderful chemistry, and the film ends on a beautifully poignant note that underlines the depth of their friendship, making it a joyous addition to the filmic explorations of transgender identity.
