"Filmmaker Spencer Windes' debut documentary film tells the story of how he evolved from a STRAIGHT ACTING Mormon missionary into a comfortably gay man by playing violent contact sports.

On the rugby pitch, hockey rink and rodeo circuit, Windes encounters the subculture of queer athletes busting stereotypes - including their own. Bruised and bloodied, Windes emerges from the scrum having rediscovered a trait common to all men, gay or straight: the need to play.

everyone wants to feel normal, not alone and part of the real world.
