Storyline

A thought provoking documentary essaying the struggles of two gay men, Steve Lofton and Roger Croteau, who've been a couple for more than 18 years, to maintain their family of five foster children, who have been labeled "undesirable" by the State of Florida's Department of Children and Families. Their patchwork family runs the gamut of age and race, from two blond tykes to three mixed race African American teens, and all five have tested HIV-positive. When when the oldest child undergoes an HIV seroconversion from positive to negative, the state relabels him "desirable," and thus "adoptable," and the family risks losing him forever.
