Sylvia Ramirez believes in marriage, two people bound together forever in love. Jules Marvin is a contented polyamorist and has plans to change. She enjoys her freedom and has interest in mogamy. Everything changes when they meet in the summer when marriage equality came to California. As Proposition 8 threatens to take away everything Sylvia's worked for, she fights her attraction to Jules. Jules is intrigued and impressed by Sylvia's passion for justice, but she's certain she's t ready for a one-on-one relationship. They're polar opposites in everything. And as San Francisco's queers fight Proposition 8, everything Sylvia and Jules assume is true is called into question.
