Nancy is a therapist who specializes in transgender clients. David is a transgender man who needs a letter from a therapist in order to pursue genital surgery. Both of them are taken by surprise when their relationship threatens to expand beyond the boundaries of what is appropriate for a therapist and her client. Meanwhile, Nancy ‘s 16 year old “daughter,” Jessica, is beginning to discover his own transgender identity: Jason. When Nancy refuses to accept that her own rhinestone-loving child could be trans, Jason looks for support at the local LGBT youth center and finds a supportive mentor in David. What will happen when Nancy ‘s two worlds collide? Standards of Care is a harsh and honest exploration of some of the realities that face the trans community.
