The film's website describes the "Anti-Homosexuality Bill" In Uganda, which ”proposes death for HIV-positive gay men, and prison for anyone who fails to turn in a known homosexual. Inspired by American evangelicals who have christened Uganda 'ground zero' in the war on the “homosexual agenda”, The Bill awaits debate in Uganda’s Parliament." This film intimately steps into the lives of gay Ugandans, some of whom have chosen to come out to their friends and family, and the struggles they face on a daily basis trying to overturn the court's rulings while educating their communities that being gay is not a crime and certainly not a grave sin as many Ugandans would suggest.
