As a decorated U.S. Marine, world-record powerlifter, and parent of three sons, Matt (Kroc) Kroczaleski appeared to be the epitome of masculinity. When outed as transgender in 2015, she suffered the loss of sponsors, fans, and family, undertaking a new test of strength and endurance. Transformer offers us a very personal look at her transition to Janae, and the challenge of reconciling the hyper-masculinity that defined her years as "Matt" with the woman she knows herself to be.
