Love Supreme

Near the end of 2008 a Christian-conservative group in California managed to pass a proposition that banned same-sex marriage. This came just six months after same-sex marriage was legalized in the state's constitution. In THE CASE AGAINST 8 we follow two gay couples who won't let their love be limited by neither the tyranny of the majority nor powerful conservative lobbyists. As their defense team they have the unlikely duo of the two star lawyers that fought on opposite sides in the Bush vs. Gore case of 2000.
