"You get used to one thing, you accept that your daughter has chosen to spend her life as a lesbian, you go to the lesbian wedding and act like it’s not a lesbian wedding, you defend her to your friends because lesbian or not, she’s still your daughter. And then, five years after the lesbian wedding, she tells you that her lesbian wife has DECIDED TO BECOME A MAN! AND I’M THE ONE OVERREACTING?! (Beat.) Do you hate me? Waiting to tell me about this until...twenty minutes before your baby shower?"
Paulette Clemons of Jamestown, North Carolina thought she was done with capital N "News" after her daughter June married her wife Natalie. Now, five years later, Paulette wants nothing more than to throw a lovely baby shower for June, but when June announces the morning of the shower that Natalie is now Nate, Paulette once again must face the difference between who her daughter is and who Paulette wants her to be. When an unexpected tragedy strikes, what matters most turns out to be more complicated than either June or Paulette thought.
