This short comedy/mockumentary follows the most crucial night of the transitionee's life, in which he undergoes the necessary transition that makes him compliant with adult life, something which is otherwise unattainable.

Adam and Douglas


"Fontandu Creations" is a crew of experts, led by Douglas Fontantu (Nathaniel Finney), a kind of modern priest, who is experienced enough to orchestrate and oversee Adam's (Adam Weisser) transition and to make sure it is smooth and complete. The whole process is suppported by Adam's closest friends, who have come to participate in and watch the occasion.


This film borrows documentary/reality tv's style to show the orchestrated effort in the "transition" tradition. When done correctly, with the right support from his close society, the transitionee swiftly moves from his 20's to his 30's overnight, without ever looking back.
