In early 1920s Copenhagen, the illustrator and artist Gerda Wegener asks her husband, Einar WegenerEddie Redmayne to stand in for a female model. The popularity of the portraits leads to Gerda painting her husband in further pictures as a woman. Einer develops an attraction for a female physical appearance and begins living as woman named Lili Elbe. Ultimately Elbe becomes the first ever recipient of male to female sex reassignment surgery, and Gerda supports her decision, although their marriage becomes strained when Gerda comes to the realization that Lili is no longer the person she married.
