In this vital, authentic follow-up to Outfest Documentary Prize winner For the Bible Tells Me So, filmmaker Daniel Karslake returns a decade later to the religious right, embittered by the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision and emboldened by the rise of Trump. Following four families of faith as they journey to accept their LGBTQ children, while their community continues to persecute the flock from within, these stories balance the heartbreaking — and inspirational — costs of freedom.
