"AN UNFORGETTABLE FILM. I have seen this film twice, and each time I was knocked out by Jamie’s hope, courage and pain." 

Jesse Kornbluth, HeadButler.com

The Second Life of Jamie P, produced and directed by Roger Sherman, a Florentine Films/Sherman Pictures LLC production, is now streaming on Amazon, Google Play and AppleTV.

Jamie Peebles always thought he was a man. Until, “like a bolt of lightning,” at age 63 she realized she’s a woman. Jamie had suppressed all knowledge of misgendering herself. As a classmate at Hampshire College and a friend for over 40 years, Director Roger Sherman, followed Jamie's emotional, revelatory, and often funny transition for a year.
