Extremely relevant, highly entertaining and utterly humanist, the critically-acclaimed film festival favorite TYING THE KNOT poignantly explores one of today's hottest issues, the political war between gay people who want to marry and those determined to stop them.
If you lost the one you love, how would it feel to have your love placed on trial? After a bank robber's bullets ends the life of cop Lois Marrero, her wife of thirteen years, Mickie, discovers a police department willing to accept the women's relationship but unwilling to release Lois's pension. When Oklahoma rancher Sam loses his husband of 25 years, cousins of the deceased spouse challenge his will and move to evict Sam from his home. As Mickie and Sam take up battle stations to defend their lives, TYING THE KNOT digs deeply into the past and present to uncover the meaning of marriage today, focusing on such key issues as rights, privilege, and love.
