Felicity Huffman received an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Bree, a male to female transsexual who is just days away from her final surgical procedure when she discovers that she fathered a son seventeen years earlier (Toby, played by Kevin Zegers).  Despite her shaky finances and her reluctance to further complicate her life, she flies to New York to get him out of jail and then persuades him to join her for the road trip back to Los Angeles, though she lets him believe that she is a Christian missionary doing a good deed.  Eventually Toby’s parentage is revealed, and the characters begin to build a relationship built on truth rather than fiction.
