Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman plays Bree, a transsexual who is counting down the days to her planned gender reassignment operation. Just a week before Bree discovers she has a son so her psychiatrist (Elizabeth Pena) tells her she won't allow the op until she comes to terms with being a father. So Bree heads to New York to meet Toby (Kevin Zegers), bail him out of prison and travel back to LA with him. Whether Bree will deal with her newfound fatherhood on their eventful road trip is another thing: Toby has no concept she is actually his long lost dad because Bree said the church sent her to help.

What really makes this touching comedy is Huffman's superb and very believable performance that is a wonderful combination of vulnerability, self-belief and strength. Zegers, who is also very good, and Huffman have great roles to work with, and that's another one of the film's strengths: its well-drawn characters.
