MARQUISE embodies the look of an urban "homeboy". She straps her chest flat with duct-tape, bites her teeth to develop a stronger jaw-line and speaks in a deep low voice. To better her life, Marquise enlists in the US Army. On the eve of her departure, she candidly speaks of how she will deal with suddenly and ironically being forced to live as a woman. We visit her at boot camp to learn of her unusual experience.
