Documentary. The director, a former television reporter, examines the story of a mother who accused the homosexual father of her child, and the child's heterosexual grandfather, of abuse. This was partly due to the biased and homophobic attitudes of the mother's new boyfriend. The two accused men were both sentenced to 35 years in prison, despite the fact that there was no actual physical evidence to support the prosecution's case.
