The Massachusetts fight for marriage equality has striking parallels to ours in California. Marriage activists lost at first, and then spent a year and a half changing hearts and minds before the issue came up for a second vote.

"Rambunctious and hopeful . . . an in-the-trenches, defiantly partisan and exuberantly big-hearted movie . . . [that] achieves a rare eloquence." - Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

"Acutely suspenseful ... A virtual how-to manual for changing hearts and minds."
- Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

Winner, Best Documentary, New York Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

If you are unable to join us for the screening in Los Angeles please, consider renting this DVD at your local Video Store and watching it at home. We have much work ahead of us and this film is a valuable tool in the fight against injustice.
