USA | 2018 | 84 minutes | Tom Shepard
Tom Shepard (GLAAD Media Award winner for SCOUT’S HONOR) brings us an evocative and timely look at the challenges and triumphs of four LGBT refugees from Africa and the Middle East as they set up new lives in San Francisco. This heartbreaking and impactful documentary chronicles the new obstacles the refugees endure after escaping the homophobic violence and persecution of their homelands. As they struggle to find homes, jobs, and legal assistance, the hope they maintain in the face of uncertainty and despair is inspiring, and their stories will stick with you long after you leave the theater.
