Set in the 1990s, Laurence Anyways is the tale of a young couple and the difficult decisions they must face after the man decides to start living his life as a woman. Laurence (Melvil Poupaud), a French teacher and soon-to-be-published author, enjoys an intense and mutually loving relationship with his fiancée, Frédérique (Suzanne Clément). But on the day after his 30th birthday, Laurence confesses to Fred that he longs to become a woman, asking her to support him in this transformation. The complications that follow frame Dolan’s latest masterpiece, asking the ageless question: Is love enough?
