About the Film
Will (age 26) is a marketing strategist in San Francisco whose job is, quite literally, to label and categorize people. He thinks he knows everything there is to know about a person just by analyzing their profile; age, gender, income, education level, and ethnicity. When Will’s girlfriend of four years, Amy, announces that their relationship is no longer working, it hits him like a ton of bricks. Amy wants to explore the world and experience all that life has to offer, but Will has become too comfortably numb in his video game obsessed lifestyle to engage in the world around him. Amy, starting to feel stuck living in this kind of environment, decides to leave him.
As time goes by, Will’s stack of monthly bills continues to grow. He realizes that unless he finds a new roommate to replace Amy, he won’t be able to afford his apartment. Desperate, Will invites Lenny, the first ordinary looking guy he can find, to come live with him. However, Lenny is neither “ordinary” nor a “guy”.
One day after work, Will accidentally walks in on Lenny dancing around his room in Amy’s old clothes and discovers that “Lenny” is actually genderfluid. Lenny's preferred nickname is “L” and L shifts between male, female, and everything (or sometimes nothing) in between. Needless to say, all of L’s presentations throw a massive wrench in Will’s “comfortably predictable world.”
Through a string of colorful adventures, embarrassing moments, and heartfelt connections, Will and L become best friends. When Amy sees the “changes” in Will’s life, she comes back and the three of them form an unusual and complicated relationship, at least until L is tracked down by his conservative family and is forced to run away, once again.
