Tying the Knot
When a bank robber's bullet ends the life of Florida police officer Lois Marrero, her wife of 13 years, Mickie, discovers a police department willing to accept the women's relationship, but unwilling to release Lois's pension. When Sam, an Oklahoma rancher loses his husband of 25 years, cousins of his 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 meaning of marriage today. This eye-opening exploration of the embattled institution looks at rights, privilege and love as gay activists and right-wing politicos lock horns in the fight for marriage.
