Description:

This film tells the courageous story of the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who must overcome the fallout of being outed to his parents. His parents struggle with reconciling their love for their son with their beliefs and the boy is pressured into a conversion therapy program. Conflict, courage and confusion fill his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self.

From the review:

“A a powerful story about sexuality, told with finesse and the right amount of grit.”

“This powerful drama benefits from moving performances and a thoughtful script that tells the heart-wrenching story of a young gay man who’s tackling faith and identity.”
