"How would YOU live if you couldn't love?"
In many eyes, homosexuality is still viewed as a mortal sin. But, what if heterosexual couples were the ones fighting for their right to love? What if the tables were turned? Writer-director K. Rocco Shields does just that, asserting that love, no matter how expressed, remains the ultimate answer to healing and truth. Based on the viral short film of the same name, Shields' powerful story explores what happens when a small town's star quarterback is outed for being "hetero"—a discovery that ignites fire in the residents and begins this tale of intolerance, bullying, prejudices...yet is ultimately about our human right to love whomever we want. - Kadie Sutherland
