Around 250,000 men in Britain escape the pressures of life by wearing women’s clothing. This documentary looks at the relationship between three transvestite couples from the wife's perspective - when did they find out their husband was a cross-dresser and how accepting are they of their partner's alter ego?

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 with time came to love and accept both sides of her husband. However the isolated community around them are not so broad minded.
