Young James struggles as the outsider kid at his school. His teacher, Mr. Sutherland, is the only person he feels he can connect with. When James finally puts a voice to his feelings, Mr. Sutherland’s response isn’t what James had hoped for.

Directed by Anna Rodgers, producer of The Story of Yes, and winner of the 2011 Absolut Gaze Filmmakers Award, this beautiful short documentary explores how gay and lesbian couples show affection, and how small interactions like holding hands in public can carry, not only huge personal significance, but also the power to create social change.
