Transfixed tells the story of a very unconventional romance: transsexual Martine and straight-identifying John are “underdogs” with Asperger Syndrome, which makes communication with others extremely difficult. Despite their social limitations, both dream of getting married, but John refuses to tie the knot until Martine gets “a real vagina.’ The only problem:  no doctor in Canada will perform the surgery because Martine’s obesity makes her too great of a surgical risk. Will Martine and John find the happiness together that they deserve? Transfixed is a deeply human story about freedom, self-actualization and the quest for happiness – one that anyone who has ever longed for love and acceptance can empathize with and understand.
