Over six years, a young woman watches her lover transition from male to female; adjusting to new breasts and hips, incredible mood swings, as well as coming to terms with her own evolving sexuality.

When Lauren and Lewis first met it seemed like a pretty conventional love story – except for one problem – Lewis didn’t know if he was a boy or a girl. Exploring the unique and challenging reality of changing genders while in a relationship, Girl Like You follows a couple over six years; as they navigate the effects of new body parts, changing gender roles as well as battling their own evolving sexual identities.
