She quickly finds it was never just about the diamonds.
A brutal murder sparks a cat and mouse chase between...
She arranges with crime boss Honest John Hartunian (Anthony La Paglia) to have him grab Frank and bring him to her secret lab, where she proceeds to perform gender reassignment surgery on him. Kay asserts that the surgery will take away Frank’s desire to kill.
Needless to say, Frank sees things a little differently, and, once she discovers that the surgery cannot be reversed, she methodically hatches a grisly revenge plot on everyone involved with her transformation from Honest John and his goons all the way up to Dr. Helping Frank in her quest is Johnnie (Caitlin Gerard), a nurse with whom Frank had a one-night stand before his transformation and who doesn’t seem particularly nonplussed by recent developments, though it seems that she may be harboring a few secrets of her own.
At a bachelorette party in a nightclub, the bride tells 2 guys offering blow to go away. The groom's 2 big brothers looked after their kid brother as kids and do so now again as veterans, "looking" for her and the 2 guys.
Alex, a mysterious thief, is pulled in by her former partner for one last heist.
Additionally, to suggest that Frank is meant to represent all transgender people is nonsense because he is clearly not one himself, and, outside of the obvious physical construct, little about him changes after undergoing his forced surgery.
I would also point out that no less of a filmmaker than Pedro Almodovar used the notion of unwilling gender reassignment surgery as a plot point in his own unabashed genre exercise, “The Skin I Live In,” and no one seemed especially put off by it even though the deployment there was arguably more questionable from a taste perspective than what is seen here.
It’s the story of a male hitman who, after he’s double crossed, goes through gender reassignment surgery against his will.
Played by Michelle Rodriguez, the narrative then follows her thirst for revenge against those behind who put her in this situation.
