Abstract:

In this film we meet eight elderly gays and lesbians who lived through an era when homosexuality was not tolerated, and who battled for self-esteem and survival in a "straight world." Among them are: a male couple still in love after 55 years of living together; a former monk turned rancher who in his eighties has made peace with being Catholic and gay; and a black great-grandmother who revealed her lesbianism to her grandchildren. This film challenges many stereotypes about homosexuals and shows that they have long-standing, deep-rooted commitments.
