Bree (Felicity Huffman) is days away from a dream she has focused on for years - the completion of her gender reassignment surgery. Her plans come to a grinding halt when she receives a call from New York and discovers she has a son, and that he has been picked up by the police. Bree's closest friend and therapist, Margaret (Elizabeth Pe09;a) tells Bree she has to deal with her past before she can move into her future.
Reluctantly, Bree springs Toby (Kevin Zegers) from jail under the pretense that she's a missionary worker. Toby begs Bree to take him with her to Los Angeles, and so they set out, each hiding their true motives and identities. With Duncan Tucker's directorial debut, he has created a story about parents and children, family and acceptance, all on a delightful estrogen cocktail.
TRANSAMERICA is Duncan Tucker's feature debut. His 2000 short film, THE MOUNTAIN KING, played in over 30 film festivals worldwide, and was featured in numerous special best-of-festival programs. THE MOUNTAIN KING received a nationwide theatrical release in 2001 in a program of four short films titled BOYS TO MEN, which was distributed by Jour De Fete/Rialto Films. The video/DVD of Boys to Men was released by Strand Releasing. Tucker's short story, MANY FISH, appeared in Ascent magazine, and his photographs and paintings have been shown in New York at Civilian Warfare Gallery, The Patrick Fox Gallery, and White Columns in Soho.
