HEART OF A WOMAN, directed by Toni Newman
Heart of a Woman is a gripping drama, based on the true story of African American writer/producer Toni Newman. Her published memoir I Rise: The Transformation of Toni Newman tells how she transitioned from being a man to living as a woman. As an educated college undergraduate, she was unable to secure respectable employment and was forced into a dark world of sex for hire that was made tolerable by the money, glamour and celebrities, but sharply punctuated by drug abuse and violence.
