Georgina Beyer is the first transsexual Maori New Zealand MP (for Wairarapa). In this absorbing portrait, she registers as an articulate, open person, her appeal and ability to break down prejudice evident in the testimony of some of her up-country constituents. The former model, actress, prostitute and drug taker candily discusses her past (rape included) and her political history. Further footage of her parliamentary performance, old friends and fellow politicos, plus clips from her movie career and family films, add up to a rounded view of a woman (since her 1984 sex change) fully at ease with herself.
