REAL BOY is the coming-of-age story of Bennett
Wallace, a transgender teenager on a journey to find his voice as a musician, a
friend, a son, and a man. Navigating the ups and downs of young adulthood, he
works to gain the support of his mother, who has deep misgivings about her
child’s transition. As tension mounts at home, Bennett is taken in by his idol,
Joe Stevens, the lead singer of the alt-Americana band, Coyote Grace. Exploring
how our search for personal identity also involves those closest to us, REAL BOY is a nuanced look at the new
American family and the people we turn to when our given families are
unavailable.
