Real Boy is the intimate, heart-rending story of 19-year-old songwriter Bennett Wallace, as he navigates early sobriety, late adolescence, and the evolution of his trans identity. Along the way, he is inspired and challenged by a troubled mentor, while his mother makes her own shift from resistance to acceptance. As they find support in their community, we are reminded that families are not only given, but chosen.
