IN THE EARLY 1990s,
a highly-decorated colonel was forced to expel an Army hero for being a lesbian. What no one knew at the time was that the same colonel was herself a closeted lesbian. Decades later, this truth is exposed in all of its complexity, and the three women involved come together again to contemplate those events and their impact.
Along the way, two of the women candidly revisit their life together and how they found love against a backdrop of impossible choices. By film’s end, they find something even more important and unexpected—their own voices as out and proud lesbians, later-in-life social activists, and dynamic role models for others.
