Shrill and hilariously lurid, this 'sensitive exposé' on transsexuals is narrated by a 'doctor' who 'understands this phenomena' -- that is, a person's loss of sexual identity; the psyche of a man or woman trapped in the body of a woman or man. There is a lot of time spent lecturing as well as on interviews with several man-to-woman and woman-to-man transsexuals. The goodly doc takes his pointer several times to the naked bodies of his patients, explaining to the viewer the 'unique characteristics' of these people. The overly serious nature and amazing 'facts' thrown at the viewer make this documentary unintentional fun. For remember, 'If the glands do not develop properly, the result is homosexuality, lesbianism, transvestism or transsexualism.'
From acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Toshiaki Toyoda (Blue Spring) comes this poignant tale of nine escaped prisoners hoping to find redemption in an unsympathetic and constantly changing society. Convinced that a secret buried treasure could be the key to finally realizing their lifelong dreams, a mad bomber, a violent biker, a pornographer, and six other determined convicts acquire a van and set off to find their fortune. Along their arduous journey, the convicts form a unique bond as they attempt to reconcile tragic pasts and make the best of an uncertain -- but increasingly bleak -- future.
