Synopsis

Mary Griffith is a devout Christian who has raised her children with a conservative religious perspective. When her son, Bobby, reveals that he is gay to his older brother, the entire family dynamic is forever shifted. While Bobby's father and siblings slowly come to terms with his homosexuality, Mary turns to her steadfast beliefs in an attempt to "cure" her son. Alienated and quickly becoming more detached from the safety of his close-knit family, Bobby's depression drives him to take drastic - and tragic - actions.
