A slice of life of a young, professional married couple with their darling baby turns a sharp, dark corner when the pair are arrested and charged with several counts of fraud. The reason: Terry and Samantha Succi aren't the man and woman that they purported to be. Under false pretenses of being a heterosexual couple, they married and adopted their child. They obtained their benefits and paid their taxes through the same fraudulent pretext of being husband and wife... and they did so because of state law that discriminates against homosexual partners; they were prohibited from receiving the same rights and benefits as their straight counterparts. Now the Governor, in an effort to protect his politically necessary anti-gay marriage bill, secretly arranges for a quick slap-on-the wrist plea offer that will ensure both a guilty plea and a fast end to the case. Terry and Samantha, though, decide to fight the fight and enlist the unlikely representation of self-absorbed, but respected attorney John DeMine. What ensues is a massive media covered courtroom battle, with equally divided views... and equally plotted acts of legal - and illegal - warfare. After a violent invasion into Samantha and Terry's home by a fringe right- wing outfit, the case is closed to the public and the courtroom becomes a stage of safety - and justice. One affirmative act, deciding not only the fate of the women's freedom, but also the governor's bill and one of the most controversial issues facing the United States, will be had in this courtroom. One affirmative act - of justice, or maybe not.
