This ground-breaking documentary explores the emotional devastation wrought by marrying against one’s sexual orientation, for the sake of complying with Orthodox religious obligations. Four gay and lesbian individuals recount their journeys from self-acceptance to social activism as they try to affect change in their religious communities that will allow them to maintain their faith while living openly. The film exposes the psychological toll that these marriages have on the straight partners as a result of being married to people who do not desire them.
