ONE LIFE. LIVED TWICE.

In their moment of birth, Louis and Louise are the same person in two different lives. They are separated only by the sex announced by the doctor, and a final 'e'.

On 8th September 1978, Louis David Alder is born male.
On 8th September 1978, Louise Dawn Alder is born female.

Louis and Louise are the same in many ways - they have the same best friends, the same parents, the same dream of being a writer and leaving their hometown in Maine as soon as they can. But because of their gender, everything looks different, which makes you question:

If you could look at one life in two different ways, what would you see?
