Cast & Crew
Paula S Apsell
In 1965, a botched circumcision started an infant boy on a nightmare of medical meddling with his sexual identity. Born Bruce Reimer, he would be surgically castrated at age two and then raised as a girl, only later to insist that he be called David and restored as a male. The program tells the scientific side of his disturbing story, which has implications for what defines sexuality and gender.
