The film is a dramatization of the real-life story of Brandon Teena played in the film by Hilary Swank , an American trans man who attempts to find himself and love in Nebraska but falls victim to a brutal hate crime perpetrated by two male acquaintances. After reading about the case while in college, Peirce conducted extensive research for a screenplay, which she worked on for almost five years. The film focuses on the relationship between Brandon and Lana. The script took dialogue directly from archive footage in the documentary The Brandon Teena Story. Swank was chosen because her personality seemed similar to Teena's. Most of the film's characters were based on real-life people; others were composites. Filming occurred during October and November in the Dallas, Texas area. The producers initially wanted to film in Falls City, Nebraska , where the real-life events had taken place; however, budget constraints meant that principal photography had to occur in Texas.
