A synopsis of the show shares: “Reid is an aspiring artist and a young transgender man beginning to find his way in the world; Jackson is his smart and focused older brother, set on a career in medicine and beginning to re-navigate his relationship with his younger brother after years away.

“Their mother Cassie is their biggest champion, and the heart of their home. Everything seems possible and wonderful – until Cassie’s sudden death causes the brothers to lose their most important lifeline, and contemplate the loss of their childhood home and all the memories it holds.”

Please note that there is a content warning in place for Brother due to references to death, self-harm, and domestic abuse.
