The legal and social conflict over gay and lesbian marriage and the existence of TV shows like In The Life and The L-Word form an integral part of today's political and social fabric. Twenty-five years ago, however, a television channel aimed at gay and lesbian audiences would have seemed impossible.

Jane Chambers saw her extended lesbian and gay community as a family and her fourteen-year relationship with another woman as a marriage. She re-created these visions in her plays - a lesbian wedding scene in My Blue Heaven, the extended family in Last Summer at Bluefish Cove. Bluefish Cove has been in production in theaters all over the country ever since.

A generation after Chambers' death her work has become more significant and socially relevant. This documentary will bring Chambers' life and struggles as a writer, both personal and political, to the forefront.
