Complicated, beautiful, and historically unrivaled, this groundbreaking film shows what is possible when a community collaborates to honour the legacy of an unlikely hero.
 
For decades, the life of American Jazz musician Billy Tipton was framed as the story of an ambitious woman passing as a man in pursuit of a music career. In No Ordinary Man, Tipton's story is finally reclaimed and performed by trans artists – including Stephan Pennington, Amos Mac, and Marquise Vilsón – as they collectively paint a portrait of an unlikely hero. Together with Tipton's son Billy Jr., the filmmakers reckon with a complicated and contested legacy: how do you tell the story of someone who was hiding in plain sight yet desperate to be seen?
