Summary A documentary film by gay filmmaker Paige Williams explores the complex relationship between the GLBT community and ex-gay ministries in the South. Her personal struggle to reconnect with her parents, Judy and Jerry, devout Southern Baptists and founders of Mississippi's only ex-gay ministry, forms the core of a gentle yet probing film that challenges stereotypes, homophobia, the concept of identity, and collective shared beliefs about sexuality and religion. Paige says this film is "even-keeled and two-sided" and that it "looks at both sides of the coin, homosexuality is a sin and homosexuality is not a sin." Additional commentary is provided by ex-gay ministers Wendy Leger and Sarah Cart, Love in Action's John Smid, and others who offer their opinions, reactions, and insights
