Despite the Torah's provision about homosexuality being "an abomination before the Law," self-assured lesbian teen Shulamit Izen bravely discloses the truth about her sexuality to the disapproving student body of The New Jewish High School of Boston in a bold attempt to form a Gay-Straight Alliance at the school. Filmmaker Irena Fayngold follows the pioneering teen activist and faithful practitioner of Judiasm on a tireless quest to overcome thousands of years of religious indoctrination and open the minds of her fellow classmates to the possibility that homosexuality and spirituality are not mutually exclusive.
