About:
A profile of an atypical Mississippi family.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Jheri Jones, a lively 74-year-old transgender divorcée, works hard to keep her family together in a trailer-park home in Mississippi’s Bible Belt. After years of estrangement encouraged by her embittered religious ex-wife, Jheri now lives with two of her grown sons. Together, the Joneses attempt to resolve old resentments, reconcile questions of identity, and reveal long-unaddressed secrets in this often-surprising family portrait.
