Fifteen years after Burton’s gender-affirming transition, his longtime friend Courtney uncovers a cache of home video from that time period and invites him to go on-camera to revisit the old footage together.

 

Concerned about outing himself to co-workers unaware of his gender reassignment, Burton initially declines, until he has a change of heart—deciding that truth is more important than fear.

Burton Before and After is an intimate portrait of transition, memory, and friendship.
