Ed is an uptight tax accountant in the middle of tax season. After a series of blackouts, he learns that he has split personality disorder – and that his alternate personality thinks she’s a woman. As Ed learns more about Helena, his
alternate personality, he also begins to develop feelings for her girlfriend. This spawns a rather unusual love triangle. It’s a film about life and love, and sexuality and gender, and identity and the power of acceptance.
