Overview

The excitement and suspense surrounding the battle for same-sex marriage serves as the focal point of this documentary from filmmakers Mike Roth and John Henning. November 18, 2003: the day that the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have the same right to marriage as heterosexual couples. But while some assumed that this was the end of the battle, it quickly became apparent that it was only the beginning. Almost immediately after the ruling passed, it came under attack by right-wing conservatives. In this film, Roth and Henning offer a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of this epic battle for equality. From the lawyers to the lobbyists to the gay couples who jumped at the opportunity to marry even as state legislators struggled over the constitutional amendment, this film speaks with men and women on each side of the issue while scrutinizing each individual skirmish and detailing Massachusetts' muddled methods of amending its constitution in no uncertain terms.
