Description

"From incredible Hulk to the most delicate flower"

7-foot-tall, preacher in a Fundamentalist church, looking at Mark one would never guess the immense struggle he felt within. Ever since he was a young boy, he knew he was different, a female stuck in a male body. But growing up in a conservative Mid-West community, he couldn't let Markie out. He went to lengths to stifle his true self. But ultimately Markie won out. Finally, she was on the outside as she was inside. Years of internal struggle came to an end, but only to kick up a new storm, now in her outside world. Alienated from family, and church, Markie tried to keep going, but how far could she go just to be herself, at what cost? Did it even mean anything if she couldn't have anyone with whom to share her life? - Shwetha VR
