Robert was born female. Lola was born male. Now, they are falling in love...but time is running out.

Rarely has a film garnered such high levels of critical praise as Southern Comfort, a breakout hit and winner nearly 20 major film festivals including the Grand Jury Prize at Sundace, from Sand Francisco to Florida, from England to Japan, Southern Comfort has mesmerized audiences and critics alike with its rare blend of humor, tragedy, and romance.

At the heart of Southern Comfort is a beautiful and remarkable love story, more touching and captivating than anything fiction could ever create. With a masterful eye for emotional detail, award-winning filmmaker Kate Davis takes us back to the hills of Georgia and into the world of Robert Eads, a 52-year-old wise-cracking cowboy, warm and gregarious, who was born female and later transitioned into living as a man after bearing two sons. The film finds Robert, fifteen years later, during the extraordinary last year of his life, as he falls headlong into a passionate romance with Lola, a vivacious and magnetic woman who was born male.

One of the most remarkable documentaries of our time about gender, family, and love relationships, Southern Comfort is an illuminating and deeply moving film-a world of contradictions where good ole boys who drive pick-up trucks and shoot the breeze around the barbecue double as 21st century pioneers, courageously forging a new world for themselves, and for us.
