Together with his partner, Andy, Gabe longs to adopt a child and to do so they must convince their social worker Jackie that they’re up to the task.

But Gabe is masking his demons: the effects of decades of shame having grown up in a society that overwhelmingly treated being gay as a sin; shame which Gabe is still processing.

At stake is the couple’s relationship, their joint and individual happiness and seven year old Jake whgo longs to be part of a family.

Take a look at the trailer.
