This doc about homophobia in sports explores the difficulty and impact of coming out in this macho world. Through a series of touching personal stories, the film examines homophobia both in elite sports and among student athletes, specifically at L’Odyssée, a school in Moncton, NB, that promotes diversity and inclusion.
