The film recounts the true story of the Griffith, a close-knit religious family in Walnut Creek, California, who are shocked to learn that their 19-year-old son, Bobby, is gay. Bobby?s father and three siblings try to come to terms with his homosexuality, but his mother Mary, a devout Christian, refuses to accept it and encourages her son to undergo therapy, prayer sessions and religious counseling in an effort to ?cure? him of his ?illness?. Unable to change his sexual persuasion, Bobby reluctantly leaves home and moves to Portland, hoping to start a new life. But the estrangement from his family, and the guilt he feels over his mother?s disapproval, take a profound toll on the young man and he ultimately commits suicide. Mary is devastated by the death of her son, and realizes that her intolerance of his sexuality ultimately drove him to suicide. She slowly begins to question her faith and reaches out to the gay community trying to make some sense of Bobby?s death, ultimately becoming a champion and spokesperson for the rights of gay and lesbian youth.
