A feel good story about the 2012 - 2013 battle against California's anti-gay marriage law, which culminated in the US Supreme Court's rejection of the law.

Obviously this decision provided the background to the Court's June of 2015 ruling that same-sex couples can marry nationwide.

While the movie never mentions that the USA was 10 years behind Canada in adding this Civil Right; nevertheless, the lawyers, clients, strategists and supporters involved in the case are enjoyable to watch.
