Stacy Dean is a hard-shelled denizen of Hollywood's seamy underside whose brassy good looks and amusingly no-nonsense demeanor hides a soft and insecure center, not to mention a not always well kept secret -- Stacy is actually a man. Creature (Stacy's nickname since childhood, when she was also known as Kyle) was directed by Parris Patton, who first encountered her/him in a stretch of Hollywood known as a hangout for transvestite prostitutes; in this film, Patton examines Stacy's life in California, shares her/his stories of growing up in North Carolina, and follows Stacy as she/he goes home for a reunion with an understandably puzzled mother and father.
