Plot Synopsis

Based on the book by Leroy Aarons. Mary Griffith, a devout Christian mother, finds her beliefs tested when she learns that her teenage son, Bobby, is gay. Mary convinces Bobby to pray for God to cure him and to involve himself in church activities. Bobby tries to please his mother but the church's hatred of homosexuality and the pain his gayness is causing his family, drive him to suicide. Mary's grief soon leads her to question her faith. Through a painfully emotional journey, she ultimately draws strength and support from the gay community and becomes an advocate for gay rights.
