"Moby Longinotto's feature documentary debut tells the story of Jheri Jones, a 74-year-old transgender divorcée, and her family in Bible Belt Mississippi. Reconciled after years of estrangement, and now living with two of her four sons in her trailer park home, Jheri embarks on a new path to reveal her true self to her grandchildren, while her son Trevor begins a surprising journey of his own. THE JONESES is a compelling documentary about an unorthodox family and the deeply complex personal bonds that make or break us" (
