Charlie is a 40-year-old transsexual who lives alone in New York City. He has given up everything to become his true self.
He spends his nights wandering the streets of Manhattan and hanging out with Matthew—his next door neighbor, a young aspiring filmmaker.
As Charlie’s male-to-female operation is near, Matthew starts a documentary about Charlie, who reveals his city-fueled doubts and tribulations, and his much regretted life choices.
The lives of these two lonesome souls intertwine until they find a way to help each other.
