Two gay ex-mormon missionaries travel across the United States to confront their past and explore their futures while discussing with other gay mormons about the rejection, oppression and the reality of a growing number of suicides they face in the LDS community.

Jonathon Levi Powell, celebrity hair and makeup stylist, and Terry Blas, comic book artist and illustrator, both grew up in the LDS Church. While on a roadtrip journey of discovery, they’ll meet with former and current members of the LDS community including Utah State Senator Jim Debakis, Neon Trees' frontman Tyler Glenn, and Real World's Ammon.

With the current rise of suicides in the gay LDS community, they address the issue through stories from survivors and families that have lost children, family members and friends to this devastating epidemic and try to find solutions and outreach to end the suffering through interviews with politicians, activists and experts in this subject matter.
