Night One – October 10th
Woman on Fire:
Brooke Guinan is a third-generation firefighter in New York City. But when Brooke transitions from male to female, it poses not only a challenge to an overwhelmingly male profession, but also to the customs of the people she cares about the most – her traditional family.
Meanwhile, Brooke’s boyfriend of two years, Jim, struggles with how to come out to his family. A wise-cracking Air Force veteran, Jim still hasn’t told his mother that Brooke is a transwoman. Brooke and Jim realize that having the life they want means being vulnerable in the face of judgment. As we watch the couple struggle, we reconsider what it means to be man and woman, gay and straight, traditional and nontraditional. A heartfelt portrait of change in the American family and workplace, Woman on Fire is a testament to love, courage, and loyalty.
