Call Me Malcolm is a documentary about a 27 year-old transgender seminary student, and his struggle with faith, love and gender identity. In 1977, a boy was born in a girl's body. After several years of self-doubt and confusion, the boy learned that he was Transgendered, and four years ago he took the necessary steps to externally live into the gender he had always been internally. The first of these steps was taking on his new name: Malcolm. As the film begins, so does Malcolm's final summer vacation from seminary. It is a time filled with great concern and apprehension. He is, by all accounts, unemployed, uncertain about his future as a minister, unrecognized as Malcolm by his parents and without a "love" in his life. Malcolm sits at the edge of the Grand Canyon, just as he sits at the precipice of his future. With what identity will he serve his parishioners? How will the world perceive him? Can his family learn to accept him? Who will love him?
