The film is a dramatization of the real-life story of Brandon Teena , an American trans man played in the film by Hilary Swank , who adopts a male identity and attempts to find himself and love in Nebraska but falls victim to a brutal hate crime perpetrated by two male acquaintances. After reading about the case while in college, Peirce conducted extensive research for a screenplay, which she worked on for almost five years.
