The story of Jared (Lucas Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. Australian actor and filmmaker Joel Edgerton’s beautifully directed film is the true story of one young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity.
