Plot Summary
Jim de Sève examines the emotional and legal struggles of a Florida policewoman and an Oklahoma farmer after the deaths of their respective same-sex life partners. De Sève highlights voices on both sides of the same-sex marriage debate and traces the history of marriage as a legal, social and religious construction in the United States, ultimately drawing parallels between the language used to denounce same-sex marriage in the 2000s and the anti-miscegenation rhetoric of the 1950s.
