Her crossing over to womanhood is fraught with second thoughts about her identity, about the multiple relationships she keeps, about finding the focus she somehow lost now that Trisha, her best friend is gone. But she also realizes that the people in her life, Michael Angelo, Gregory, Yumi, of varying genders and desires are what becomes her newfound family. The question in the end is: Will she finally cross that gender line?
