Documentary film on the effects of various programs throughout the United States collectively ascribing to the so-called "Ex-Gay Movement" belief that homosexuals can happily lead heterosexual lives. The participants in the documentary all voluntarily joined the programs and now talk of the lack of effectiveness of the programs and the damaging effects they had on their lives. The show follows the participants paths into the ex-gay program, results of the program, and their present attitudes toward Christianity and sexuality.
