Montreal, 1989. Laurence Alia celebrates his 30th birthday with his girlfriend Fred, and reveals his deepest desire: he wants to become a woman. After much trepidation, Fred agrees to accompany Laurence through the metamorphosis. Once it's complete, Laurence returns to his life as a woman, but despite what seems like a smooth transition, the weight of social stigma, family rejection, and the incompatibility of the couple ultimately becomes too much to handle.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Passionate and powerfully acted, Laurence Anyways sometimes strains to achieve its narrative ambitions (and fill its three-hour running time), but ultimately succeeds.
