From the age of eight, Catherine McGregor knew she was a woman. But first she would have to live as a man.
She played many parts: son, brother, husband, athlete, soldier, speech writer. She worked in professions full of machismo, inside institutions built by men.
Every day was a challenge, and every challenge took its toll. In 2012, aged 56, McGregor faced a turning point: end her life, or transition as a woman.
Writer-director Priscilla Jackman draws from countless hours of interviews with McGregor to tell her story in her own words, revealing a woman of fierce intellect, passion, incisive humour and profound feeling.
Nicholas Brown, Andrew Guy, Chantelle Jamieson, Ashley Lyons, and Georgina Symes feature. Heather Mitchell stars.
