MY MAMA, A MAN is a short documentary about Julie Middleton and her desire to spend a day as a man. When Julie was a child she was desperate to be a boy, when she hit adolescence she felt she lost that boy inside of her. Now Julie is approaching her 60th birthday and she has a made a list of 60 things she wants to do, and right near the top of that list is to be a man for a day.

With the help of her daughter, we see Julie as she is introduced to the drag king scene and discovers a new persona of her own, Willy Foraday. Once Julie has experienced a day in Willy’s shoes she makes the emotional realisation that the boy is still there within her, and we should all be whoever we want to be.
