Simone, a young lesbian mother, survives being shot outside of her home. She must choose between living in hiding with her daughter in Jamaica or seek asylum abroad alone. Maurice, a gay-rights activist, is ousted shortly after filing a lawsuit to overturn Jamaica’s anti-sodomy law. He escapes to Canada, but decides to return to continue his activism. This documentary explores the impacts of homophobia through the eyes of two Jamaicans who are forced to choose between their homeland and their lives.
