Plot summary

Ladyboy is an experimental short about a woman in Thailand who has undergone gender realignment and now faces the toughest decision of her life. Should she move to Canada for love or stay in Bangkok and carry on providing for her family via prostitution? It's a far more difficult choice than any outsider might ever imagine.
