A portrait of troubled family relations, modern social justice issues and deeply personal choices.

Activist Xander Wallace and his straitlaced father do not have an easy relationship. Jim’s views on race, immigration, gender, sexuality and even millennials alienate his son no matter how hard Xander tries to find common ground.

Toss in Jim’s second marriage ten months after Xander’s mother died and it’s a volatile cocktail.

How, against this backdrop, will Xander dare to bare his soul and reveal his greatest secret?

“An insightful look at the social challenges of personal identity.”
