“The Graduate” ©
What happens when a family is forced to deal with the realities of a changing family dynamic that challenges their faith and their future? It is easier to preach and teach against the norm, until it shows up in your very own family, and you are forced to deal with it. Is being gay a sin? Can God make the mistake and put a girl in a boy’s body? Does the lack of hardcore rough sports and more emphasis on love mean your son will be gay? What is the DNA chromosome connection between twins and where will the struggle and the connection begin and end?
Watch as the Harris family deals with denial in the face of adversity that challenges the very faith in the God that they serve. The problems do not start today, but there is a long string of unresolved issues that culminate in the vulnerability of one unique character: because the mirror does not lie!
Laugh, cry, even get angry but follow the graduate with an unsuspected twist that will leave you questioning your own beliefs.
