In this feature documentary film, producer and director Eric Crabb Moon steps in front of the camera to become to subject alongside his wife Laura as “The Married Couple” in Eric and Laura: A Love Lost in Translation. This film aims to add their voices to the on-going conversation regarding the dominant cultural norms that tend to limit identity options based on one’s assigned sex at birth, compelling children to misery themselves into a socially approved gender construct aligned with their perceived biology. It contextualizes and gives human faces to the complex question, “Who are we,” and “to what extent does biology influence the construction of identity?”

After three years of marriage, Eric (very recently) came out as a transgender man and wants to transition medically (testosterone and chest surgery). Laura, who identifies as a lesbian, says has fought her “whole life” to carve out a lesbian identity.
