New York City
Baby with the Bathwater takes a humorous but insightful look at the difficult, lifelong journey of a parent-child relationship. Proud parents John and Helen somehow overlook their child’s gender and do their overwhelmed best to guide the confused “Daisy” through life. Toting the baggage of a girl’s name and upbringing proves too much for the boy as he struggles through failed suicide attempts, problems in school, reckless promiscuity and years of therapy until he decides to change. Shedding the dresses worn in his youth for the outfits of a husband and father, we last see a thirty-something man actively moving forward, refusing to allow his past to contaminate his future.
