BRIDEGROOM details the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men in a loving and committed relationship – a relationship cut tragically short by a misstep off the side of a roof. It is the story of what happens after an accidental death, and of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized. It is a poignant and enraging film about the importance of marriage equality that gets the point across more effectively than any lecture or debate ever will.
