The Real Thing  United States / 2017 / 8 mins

The trip home for a Soldier is surreal. Things have changed. The people are older and don't understand what he's been through. The scenery is different and sometimes home doesn't feel like home. For one soldier the ultimate change is in his child. While on his tour of duty, his son has transitioned to be his daughter. He has never met her in person, and today he is coming home to surprise her.

For his daughter, life is full of obstacles and challenges. The people are curious and don't understand what she's been through. His parents' attitudes are still adjusting, and sometimes home doesn't feel like home. For Allie, a rough day at school ends with at surprise. Her father is home from the army, and he's standing in her room. Parental love is unconditional. It transcends a person's memory of their child. The Real Thing is an infinitely stronger bond.
