Love Free or Die is about Gene Robinson, the first openly gay person to be elected in the high church traditions of Christendom, whose two defining passions much of the world cannot reconcile: his love for God and for his partner Mark.
Following Gene's 2003 civil union in New Hampshire; the once-a-decade global Anglican bishops' gathering in Canterbury; and the biennial gathering of the Episcopal Church in American, the film provides a glimpse into the inner workings of this moment of change from Robinson's perspective. Love Free or Die is about church and state, love and marriage, faith and identity — and one man's struggle to dispel the notion that God's love has limits.
