Award winning actress Meredith Baxter narrates this inspiring documentary about one of the most famous episodes in modern LGBT history as experienced by one woman.

In 1977, singer and former beauty queen Anita Bryant launched her Save Our Children effort to repeal a nondiscrimination ordinance in Florida. A year later, Ronni Sanlo came out as a lesbian which led to her losing custody of her two children — and driving her to become a civil rights activist.

The film includes historical footage as well as a recent interview with Anita Bryant’s son and his wife.
