A dark comedy of gender manipulation.

The Problem: Trevor, 26, is a loner obsessed with women. But he's so afraid of them he can barely speak in their presence. He needs companionship. A lover, someone to trust, someone to obey him…

Lahn, 22, is a smack addict and slacker. He likes women, but not as much as heroin. He stole his dealer's stash, and now needs a place to hide, someone to conceal and protect him…
,br>The Solution: Trevor can hide Lahn, lie for him, pride for him…

The Price: But only if Lahn Becomes Dorothy, Trevor's perfect woman!

The boldest psychosexual drama since Blue Velvet, Surrender Dorothy is the compelling and controversial story of two heterosexual men who come together in need and begin one of the most unusual relationship on film. Cross-dressin, gender-bending and drug abuse are the norm as Lahn becomes Dorothy for the price of a fix. But is it enough for Trevor?

A grittily acted piece that mixes intense drama and black comedy, Surrender Dorothy takes all your perceptions of human behavior and turns them upside-down and inside-out!
