With her own wedding just around the corner, filmmaker Sharon Shattuck returns home to examine the mystery at the heart of her upbringing: how her transgender father, Trisha, and her straight-identified mother, Marcia, stayed together against all odds. From This Day Forward is a moving portrayal of an American family coping with the most intimate of transformations. Her father, an artist, uses painting as catharsis, as a way to reach the beauty within and stay connected to her true identity. Her mother, a physician, finds herself doubting whether she can love her husband as a woman. The film raises important questions relevant to all of us. How do we adapt to sustain love long term? Where do sexuality and gender intersect? And how do families stay together when social norms dictate otherwise?
