Storyline

The film shows postwar Los Angeles to be a city of startling contrasts. In this tale of two cities, there is one, a city with a substantial, vibrant gay community, and the other, a city obsessed with rendering that community invisible, kept in the closet or locked in its jails. Written by Glenne McElhinney
