This is a true story about two people who loved each other. Tom and Shane were the perfect couple until a sad accident left Shane alone. This documentary shows the lives of these two men from their beginning years, through high school, their introduction to each other at a bowling alley, their love story, the sad accident of Tom, the support of Shane's family and how Tom's family came into Shane's home after Tom's accidental death and took his belongings without any compassion towards Shane but instead banned him from attending his partner funeral.
This was a very powerful story of true love. This documentary was created with the support of over 6800 Kickstarter Donors as well as many other people including Bill Clinton.
On a personal note, after hearing this story in May 2011, my partner and I realized how important it is to protect ourselves in case something ever did happen to either of us. Thank you Shane for sharing your love story with us. You truly are an inspiration.

I can't believe that in this day and age someone has to respond to something like this, but I refuse to stay silent.

"Has this not happened before? Sad film and sad story but I have to ask. If these guys were not "hot" or "cute" as everyone is saying would people still care about this story? I don't believe this was put out there to raise attention but rather get attention. Sorry to the person who lost their life." - November 3, 2013

Yes this has most certainly happened before. The LGBT community has most certainly been robbed of their rights not only by government officials but by their "friends" and neighbors. That the key players in this particular saga are "hot" or "cute" should not take away from the fact that this happened to them, has happened to others before, and will happen again and again... unless people like me and people like you stand up to it. If you are not hot or cute, so what? Still stand up to it. In comparison, think of all the white people who stood up to racism even though they themselves were not black.

Why care about this story? Because someone put their heart and quite possibly their soul into it. Because it's well-made. Because the fight for LGBT rights is far from over, though amazing progress has been made in the last few years. Because it could happen to someone who knows someone you know--or worse, it could happen to you.

This is one of those rare films that makes you believe in love. People really do fall in love; and begin to care for someone else more than they care for themselves. I'm stating that because I'm in my 50s now; I'm alittle dented and dusty; alittle cynical; alittle world weary; alittle misanthropic but this film erased some of it. That's the story of Tom and Shane. Love is real.

One could view this film with many different eyes..
political, equality, injustice, etc. I feel at it's heart it is a love story plain and simple. It's so well done it pulls you in before you know it; you're right there with Tom and Shane. and then.. Tom is gone. I was hangin' pretty tough til Shane's first birthday after losing Tom. In his narrative he states that he tells people he's ok and doing fine but admits he's NOT ok, he's NOT fine. Man, does that bring it home! Anyone who's lost someone close to them will FEEL that line. Because you're NOT the same, never will be; and the underlying truth is you don't stop loving someone because they've passed away; that love stays with you and you feel it everyday. This film illustrates it perfectly...even in death.. Love endures.

On a broader human/political note.. Anyone who sees this film has to recognize that gay people are not just physcially attracted to one another but emotionally, and spiritially attracted as well. To be more specific, This film clearly shows that Tom and Shane share a physical, emotional, and spirtially bond; THAT constitutes a real marriage. I believe this film will take us a step closer to the legal acknowledgement.

Thank you Shane for putting yourself out there; for sharing Tom will us.

God Bless Tom Bridegroom!

When I first learned of Shane & Tom's story last year, I was, like many around the world, moved to tears. It's awful enough to loose someone you love, but for it to be the love of your life & then to have that person's family completely shut you out of everything...I can't even imagine.

This easily could have been a sad and bitter documentary but it was a celebration of Shane & Tom's life together. The director/producers even seemed to go the extra mile to try & show that even though they were completely wrong in how they handled things, they believed that Tom's family did love him...& for all their shortcomings (& there are many), Tom loved his family in return.

Since Shane's video first hit YouTube last year, we've come a LONG way in the battle for equality. We have a long way to go still, but I think the more people that watch this documentary (& especially the video that started it all), we'll be there sooner rather than later. You just can't watch this film (& if you have a heart) come away not knowing that love is love & who you love just shouldn't matter. Thank you Shane.
