Synopsis: A behind-the-scenes look inside the historic case to overturn California’s ban on same-sex marriage (Proposition 8). The film also follows the plaintiffs, two gay couples who find their families at the center of the same-sex marriage controversy. It also profiles the unlikely pairing of the men who spearheaded the Perry vs S: Ted Olson and David Boies, political foes who last faced off as opposing attorneys in Bush v. Gore. Five years in the making, this is the story of how they took the first federal marriage equality lawsuit to the U.S. Supreme Court.
