As a little girl, Pilar has no one. Her mother, the powerful head of a Broadway theater company, has no time for her. She does have one friend-a handsome, comforting, funny man named Venus-but only she can see him.
Years later, Pilar is in her thirties and just as alone as ever. Then she meets Venus again-as handsome, smart and perfect as she remembers him to be. But not even Venus knows the reason they've really been reunited.
VENUS AS A BOY is a love story with an irresistible twist, a film about the child inside all of us-and the boundary-crossing power of love.
