A Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize Winner, SOUTHERN COMFORT documents the final year in the life of Robert Eads, a female-to-male transsexual. Eads, diagnosed with ovarian cancer, was turned down for treatment by two dozen doctors out of fear that treating such a patient would hurt their reputations. By the time Eads received treatment, the cancer was too advanced to save his life. Filmmaker Kate Davis follows Robert and a group of transgendered southerners in this captivating and truly touching documentary.
