Through the experiences of five very normal, Christian, American families – including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson – we discover how people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child or family member.

Offering healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity, this landmark film “boldly takes on a loaded topic and examines it both intellectually and emotionally; the result may well leave you blinking away a few tears.” (Seattle Times)

"Confronts, with whimsy and hellfire, the clash between religion and homosexuality. (New York Magazine)

"An incredibly powerful film everybody should see.  It restores your faith in people."  (National Public Radio)
