Love or hate can change anyone's behavior.
Gerard is struggling for acceptance. In an America loaded with weapons, being rejected for who you are can have destructive consequences..
This film is about choices too. Consequences can be dire or not, you are the master of your actions.

Director Statement

We all know rejection, this is part of life. We all deal well with it most of the time.
But what happens when you are constantly attacked and rejected for being who you are in your very core.
Gerard Hill, our lead, was forced to pretend to be someone he is not his all life. So when he comes out as a gay man, his balance is tempered with and rejection could have destructive consequences.
