Ben is pretty much a normal teenager until after his parents' divorce, when he finds himself facing a more unusual situation: his father, Charlie, is going through a transition and becoming a woman, Carly. "Becoming Us" documents the situation and how Carly's transition affects the rest of the family, which includes Ben's sister, Sutton, who is busy planning her upcoming wedding. In a coincidental twist, Ben's girlfriend, Danielle, also has a transgender father. While not many young people go through that exact situation, the themes and coming-of-age issues explored on the reality series are universal and relatable for many young folks.
