BRIDEGROOM tells the emotional journey of Shane and Tom, two young men in a loving and committed relationship that was cut tragically short by a misstep off the side of a roof. The story of what happened after this accidental death– of how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves completely shut out and ostracized– is poignant, enraging and opens a window onto the issue of marriage equality and human rights like no speech or lecture ever will.

BRIDEGROOM opens in Los Angeles on October 18. The film airs on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network at 10:00pm PT/ET on October 27, and will also be available on NetFlix, starting October 27.
