Like a Woman follows Taylor, a working class white girl too tough and too tender for her own good, who helps friends, rescues strays, and carries her battered copy of Ghandi on Non-Violence everywhere she goes. She reads curled up in the sewer drain by Venice Beach under the shot-out flashing Chevron light, yet still fights at the drop of a dime, cuts johns who say the wrong thing, and steals anything she can get her hands on. Her girlfriend, Jackson, a young African-American street worker who lives in the back of a junk yard totaled limo, dreams of becoming a writer and receives daily guidance from her recently deceased mama. Joining them are fellow homeless street kids; high-end sex workers with Ph.Ds; Eddie, a butch transvestite from Pasadena who runs a 'Speak-Easy' for johns who just want to talk; a fierce and loyal Rottweiler named J. Edgar; and Dutch, a barrel-chested, flat butt old cowboy who eventually helps Taylor get off the streets.
