This is the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men whose loving and committed relationship was cut tragically short. It is the story of what happened after Tom's accidental death and of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized. After a year of documenting his own grief, Shane decided to make a video tribute to his partner entitled "It Could Happen to You" which he posted on YouTube. It received over 3.4 million views and has been translated into over 20 different languages and led to the making of this film.
