The understated series features the day-to-day struggles of a transgender woman who is finding herself while discovering the powerful connection between a parent and child. But September Mornings, the title for which comes from a Brazilian song by the late Venusa Santos Flores, also reveals the stress of being a transgender person in society that does not accept her, while simultaneously trying to climb out of poverty and build genuine relationships. Cassandra, who is finally finding her footing, struggles between wanting to be left alone to live the life that she wants, and the need to connect with her son, who is facing his share of hardships. The narrative is both thoughtful and honest, but the transformation of Cassandra's relationship with her son makes the show poignant, and certainly worth the watch.
