This is the story of Ilan Kwittken, an actor who likes to portray women. We follow him as he tells his personal story of growing up with an abusive father, developing his sexual identity and at the same time his interest in playing female roles. The story also touches on the difficulties of being gay in the entertainment industry during the late eighties. In his quest to develop this art form, Ilan went on to perform a host of female characters, and the movie culminates with his transformation and performance as Judy Garland.
