Filmmaker’s statement

Life is about choices. How do you know you are making the right one?

Being gay myself, I find the question of difference fascinating. Could medical tests eventually anticipate sexual orientation? If so, what would you decide if you discovered your son was going to be gay?

The book Far From the Tree by Andrew Solomon inspired me to come up with this story.
