Jared (Lucas Hedges
) is the teenage son of a Baptist minister (Russell Crowe
) in a small American town. Although his mother (Nicole Kidman
) loves him unconditionally, his father tells Jared he'll have to disown him when the teen admits he's attracted to men.
His mother takes him to a church-run gay conversion program, where they teach the patients that no one is born a homosexual, that it's a choice. He's told that God will not love him the way that he is. However, Jared has a hard time trying to wrap his head around these ideas.
