As Massachusetts becomes the first state to recognize same sex marriage, the eyes of the nation turn to this historic vote. Capturing the struggle as it unfolds, Saving Marriage documents the true personal stories of politicians, lobbyists and the everyday Americans fighting to shape the future.
In November of 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial court ruled gay marriage legal. Public outcry pushed conservative legislators to approve a constitutional amendment that would override the decision and take marriage away from the gay and lesbian couples but there is still hope. SAVING MARRIAGE chronicles the two-year, long drama that unfolds as career politicians who stand up to their constituents and follow their hearts; seasoned lobbyists who see the dream of the gay rights movement suddenly within reach; and as the gay community spurs into action by an issue that could change their lives.
