The program’s 18th-season finale, "Real Boy," focuses on the challenges faced by a transgender teen and his mother. Bennett realizes that Suzy has to make her own adjustment in accepting he is no longer the daughter she raised, and he has his own hurdles above and beyond the usual rites of adolescence. Producer-director Shaleece Haas followed them over the course of four years, profiling how strong the bond between them has remained through all the changes.
