Lennie is an attorney focusing on LGBT issues, and Pearl is a retired professor working on various political issues. They are surprised to have reached icon status. The film includes public and private moments in Lennie and Pearl's lives using interviews, archival material, and sequences shot during their efforts to defeat North Carolina's anti-gay marriage amendment. They offer wisdom about enduring relationships and think of themselves as two circles, often overlapping, who are both independent and interdependent. After 46-years of living in the overlap, Lennie and Pearl still have an indelible spark."--Container
