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

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
is a nuanced look at the new American family and the people we turn to
when our given families are unavailable.
