Caught between two worlds,  three gay and lesbian Seventh-day Adventists who love God and their church struggle with how to reconcile their faith, identity, and sexuality in this raw and moving documentary.

One young man spent five years in "ex-gay" therapy trying to become straight, but now he's falling in love with another man and wondering if that can be okay. Another was an Adventist pastor in Brazil who was fired for being gay. Can he find his calling again? And a lesbian mom from the midwest wants her daughters to grow up with her faith and beliefs, even though she knows her church might not accept their family.

Growing up Adventist means knowing you belong. And being Adventist is about much more than a set of beliefs--it's a close-knit community not easily left. Discovering you are gay in this community often means loss and exile from all that has been home.

This feature-length documentary follows their raw and moving journeys as they wrestle with deep questions and struggle to find a place where they can integrate identity, love, and belief. Through the lens of real people and real stories, this film is creating listening spaces for genuine dialogue and connection all over the country (and internationally) from film festivals to churches.
