Since the 1950s, sex change operations have been available in Casablanca. These trailblazing operations were as rare as they were risky; the patients were not required to undergo any kind of psychological assessment beforehand. Filmmaker Michiel van Erp asks five pioneering trans-women (including famed British socialite April Ashley) if their experiences of womenhood matched their expectations at the time of their transition. What have their lives been like since and how did the world react to this first generation of transsexuals?
