‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ Plot Summary

Hansel Schmidt, better known as the singer Hedwig, is born male in East Berlin. Hansel falls in love with an American G.I. and undergoes a failed gender reassignment surgery in order to marry him and flee to the West. Unfortunately, the G.I. leaves Hansel, now known as Hedwig, for another man once they are in the United States. Hedwig turns to her love of music and forms a rock band. The film tells Hedwig’s life story through a series of concerts at rundown Bilgewater Inn seafood restaurants. Her tour dates coincide with those of arena-rock star Tommy Gnosis, a wide-eyed boy who once loved Hedwig – but then left with all her songs.
