The trailer for “3 Generations” has just been released online, and it centers on Ray (Elle Fanning), a teen who wants to undergo sex reassignment surgery.

In the clip, Ray has a very close relationship to her mom, Maggie (Naomi Watts). Maggie is very supportive of her daughter’s desire to transition from a girl to a boy. However, Maggie’s mom, Dolly (Susan Sarandon), who has a girlfriend named Frances (Linda Emond), is unsure whether or not the surgery is a good idea.

After several consultations with Ray’s physician, she and her mom and grandmother are told that she needs to get her father’s consent as well. Unfortunately, Ray doesn’t have a relationship with her dad, Craig (Tate Donovan), because he left her when she was just a baby. But since Ray is determined to become a man, she reaches out to her dad.
