During a nasty divorce, Butch, the 67 year-old Jewish macho and homophobic owner of a South Florida auto-wrecking company, hides from the law…as a woman, setting off a twisting tale of discovery. Naming herself after her two idols – Gloria Estefan and Gloria Steinem, she decides to remodel herself in much the same way Butch once lovingly restored his old cars. As a senior citizen, she undergoes a risky sex-change operation, becomes a dominatrix, then a transgender activist, and finds love all while trying to reconcile with her dysfunctional family. Uncle Gloria: One Helluva Ride is a darkly funny, stranger-than-fiction film full of family drama and fireworks. In the end, we all would love to have our very own Uncle Gloria.

Filmmakers and Talent expected to be in attendance for a Q&A after the film.
