Around 250,000 men in Britain escape the pressures of life by wearing women’s clothing.  This documentary explores the relationship between three transvestite couples as seen from the wife's perspective.  Was it something they were aware of when they fell in love with their partner and how accepting are they of their husbands doubles lives?

Sheila, a retired secretary from Inverness, had been married to Dennis for just 18 months when he admitted he was a transvestite who like to be called Denise.  She was initially shocked and confused but by controlling how Denise emerged she came to love and accept her.  But the isolated community around them are not so broad minded.
