As civil rights for LGBT and other minority groups are won violent backlashes have been known to increase. Today LGBT people are far more likely than any other minority group in the United States to be victimized by violent hate crimes. This short version of the film tells the story of a hate crime in a gay bar called Puzzles Lounge in New Bedford, MA when a teenager entered and brutally attacked its patrons.

The film leaves us knowing that hate did come to New Bedford, but with endurance, a community survived and united together.”– Cora Berke, OUT IN NEW JERSEY
