Synopsis: Oscar-nominated Kirby Dick directs this shocking and passionate indictment of the clandestine hypocrisy of many closeted homosexuals in Washington, D.C. The individuals under scrutiny here are policymakers who have widely disparaged and worked to bring down the LGBT population, while hiding their own sexual identities. The media’s role in encouraging a neutral and at times closeted sexual orientation from politicians is also discussed.
