This movie takes a very non-bias view into the lives of some Utah (where I am from and lived through this) citizens who stood in the face of bigotry and yelled in their ears. The movie was wonderfully put together with some amazing historical facts thrown in. Even with a reporters non-biased viewpoint this movie takes, you can't help but hate the SLC council members as well as many of the citizens of this state for their close mindedness, hatred, blindness, and narrowness. With the theme of the issue and the point of this whole fight, you can't help but see the idiocies of the anti-gay supporters.
