An Authentic Family

It's been a long time since I have seen a family portrayed in an authentic way. Here are the Nourys. Just a regular family raising kids in New Jersey. One of their daughters just happens to be transgender. But the story is so much more than that. It's about loving your children and letting them discover their purpose in life. It's so well made. Kudos to director Jonathan C. Hyde.
