Jon Garcia is not a Mormon. But he has written, produced and directed three films about two Mormon missionaries who fall in love. Over the course of those three films, they work to reconcile their romance with their faith, their families and with themselves.
In this film, loving a man and loving Jesus isn’t as much an either/or proposition — so no one has to give up one for the other. And in this film, being a part of the Mormon Church or not being a part of the Mormon Church is a choice as opposed to the oppressive force that ex-communicates anyone who doesn’t fall in line with their tenets.
