Film description

A visually daring and ironic, but also touching story of an almost woman, almost lover, and almost star. Born in West Berlin as Hansel, Hedwig longs for the love of an American soldier and undergoes a failed sex change operation that results in the titular “angry inch” between his legs, forever stranding her on the crossroads between genders. While her despair finds solace in music, in a search for happiness and fulfillment, Hedwig unfortunately finds the young Tommy, who steals her songs, and casts her into the dustbin of rock history. Hedwig spends life longing for the mythic harmony, the androgynous whole that is the fountainhead of a love that jealous gods destroyed in the days of yore.
