Based on a true story, Drama
Laurel Hester was one of the finest officers in the New Jersey police force. After meeting Stacie at a volleyball game the two quickly fell in love and became civil partners. Following Laurel’s diagnosis with terminal cancer, she attempts to have her pension benefits passed onto Stacie, a right routinely afforded to heterosexual couples. However she encounters stern resistance from county officials, forcing Laurel and Stacie into the unwanted role of political advocates as they fight for justice. Based on a landmark case in the United States which helped pave the way for same-sex marriage there, this is an important story told with integrity and sincerity. The film demonstrates how small campaigns by ordinary individuals can profoundly influence wider social and political attitudes.
