If he is to become a man, what sort of man should Thomas Page McBee be? To answer that question, he confronted the suffering he has endured at the hands of men: the abuse he endured as a child from his father and the violent mugging which almost killed him as an adult. Standing at the brink of the life-changing decision to transition from female to male, he sought to understand these examples of flawed manhood and reclaim his body on his own terms.

He explores how we all struggle to create ourselves, and how this struggle often requires risks, and grapples with the questions of legacy and forgiveness, love and violence, agency and invisibility.
