On November 4, 2008 the voters of California passed Proposition 8 revoking marriage rights for same sex couples. The next day in Los Angeles a movement was born. Chronicling several people's lives in the wake of the passage of Prop 8, we meet several people from all walks of life, inspired to action in ways they never dreamed, to a conclusion they never expected. Experience the passionate rallies and defiant marches of the new gay rights movement as it swept through Los Angeles and ignited the world beyond. Intimate interviews reveal all the ways the movement comes together, and the subtle and not-so-subtle ways it can be pulled apart from within. Shot in early 2009, our cast is anxiously waiting for the California Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of Prop 8, and preparing for "Day of Decision." INSPIRED: THE VOICES AGAINST PROP 8 goes behind the headlines and propaganda to explore the real people who make up a movement. You will be INSPIRED.
