Gay rugby player Mark Bingham was one of the passengers who stormed the cockpit of United Flight 93 during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This powerful documentary is an emotional, stirring portrait of both Mark and his mother, Alice Hoagland, who was propelled to become a staunch advocate of gay rights and godmother to the gay rugby community worldwide. Mark’s own home videos and candid interviews with friends, family, and team mates illustrate how his life and deeds inspired a nation.
