Writer/director Travis Fine partners with screenwriter George Arthur Bloom to tell the affecting true life story of a loving gay couple from Los Angeles who in the 1970s waged a valiant fight to adopt a Down syndrome teen abandoned by his drug addicted mother. When struggling singer Rudy (Alan Cumming) went to complain about the loud music blasting from his neighbor's house, the scene he found left him deeply saddened. Marco, an adolescent with Down syndrome, had been left to fend for himself by his absentee mother. Though Family Services quickly takes Marco in, a few days later Rudy finds him wandering aimlessly on the streets. Concerned, he brings Marco home and before long Rudy and his partner Paul (Garret Dillahunt) -- a closeted district attorney -- have become the boy's surrogate parents. For a while everyone is happy, though when Rudy and Paul's sexual orientation is brought into question by the court system, the two men find themselves locked in a protracted legal battle to become the legal guardians of the remarkable boy who showed them both the true joy of what it means to be a parent.
