Synopsis

Bennett Wallace is 19, a musician, and in recovery. When he meets his idol, Joe Stevens of the band Coyote Grace, Bennett's personal and aspirational lives collide. Joe serves as Virgil to Ben's Dante while he goes on a journey (both literal and figurative) to forge his identity as a transgender man and an artist. Navigating the difficult terrain of fractured family bonds, Bennett finds his parents and sister reacting to his coming out with varying degrees of dismay but he maintains a deepening, if at-times tense, relationship with his mother, Suzy, as she struggles to understand his identity. When Bennett and his best friend, Dylan, plan a trip to Florida to undergo top surgery at the same time, what seems a culminating event becomes more of a way station.
