A moving film about finding your voice and championing your identity, Exact Change is the powerful and personal story of noted Cleveland actor, journalist, and critic Christine Howey. Before transitioning in 1990, Ms. Howey was a celebrated stage actor in Cleveland, known for playing such heavy-hitting male roles as Lucifer, Goebbels, “Terrible Jim Fitch,” Richard Nixon, God and others. Exact Change is a one-woman tour-de force spiced with political rants, historical reflections, personal stories and an incisive wit that truly packs a punch.
