At 13, Matthew Boger was thrown out of his home for being gay. While living on the streets of Hollywood, he was savagely beaten by neo-Nazi skinheads. Worlds collide when a chance meeting 25 years later brings him face to face with Tim Zaal, one of his attackers. They embark on a journey of forgiveness that challenges both to grapple with their beliefs and fears, and leads to an improbable friendship. [mature]
