Anderson (birth name "Vera") is a transsexual man who lives in a correctional facility for young people. After a book of verses about his life as a young troubled youth, he meets a benevolent, educated man, who helps him, even allowing him to spend some time at his home, and arranges for a job for him as an intern in his office. He comes into his gender identity and begins to dress as a man, eventually falling in love with a woman and passing as cisgender to her family.
