Looking for the name of a film I saw many years ago.

It's a very underground sort of film, centered around
two transgender female->male -- I am not sure the
correct way to describe them, except extraordinary --

One of them was born a little girl but seemingly
raised (very lovingly) almost as a son and grew
up identifying with the heroism of Superman.

It's a really powerful film, I saw it twice but for the
life of me can not remember the title. Any help
appreciated, and if you haven't seen it, find it.

thanks

I'm going to keep searching.

6. It was very "underground" as I recall. Not a documentary

 

but pretty home-made, roughly filmed.
It impressed me as being about the actual characters
and they did not seem to be professional actors.

I don't even know quite how to describe the
characters. Really unique film.

7. Where did you see it?

Any other plot element that can be searched on (like the superman part)? When you say "many years," how many roughly are we talking?

8. I rented it (VHS, Blockbuster) - maybe late 90's or early zeroes

 

A girl with a beard living as a boy
Meets another girl-living-as-boy, the Superman character
They have a lot of rough and heart rending times.
It is a very roughly-made film, gritty.

Character #1 talks about the chemicals of sorrow
from the mother's womb
At one point he/she is arrested and it seems possibly
raped or at least abused and humiliated at police
station.

wish I knew how to find it.. I have done quite a bit
of searching.
