On May 8th, 2012 the people of North Carolina voted overwhelmingly to affirm Amendment One to the state constitution. Amendment One defines marriage between one man and one woman as the ONLY legal union recognized by the state. It has come to be known more commonly as a ban on gay marriage, similar to legislation passed in more than 30 other states.

It outlaws any union between gay couples, not to mention domestic partnerships between straight couples too. Now, amidst an outpouring of emotional response from the rest of the country, North Carolina is the latest hotbed for an issue that will be faced by the entire nation, and eventually the world...

This is an explosive issue,  and the time has come for understanding: understanding of the politics behind the issue, understanding of the opposing viewpoints, understanding of each other.

From producers Will Clegg and Lauren Schneider comes a new documentary aimed at starting this discussion. Before another state must endure the confusion and discord of the vote on same sex unions, let us discover together how and why this issue has become so charged.
