As an army medic, he singlehandedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor

For 13 years Sam, Steven, and the smart, fun-loving, level-headed East Indian beauty Samantha Singh lived together as men and wife. They slept together, ran a business together, and produced two children--one by the tall, reserved Steven, one by the irrepressible jester Sam. Their relationship is "triogamous," because as they define it, they have a three-way marriage. Filmed over nine years, the film includes interviews with relatives and friends adjusting to the unique arrangement and captures the feelings of the threesome as it evolves. But as years pass and children are born, giddy jokes about indeterminate paternity grow sardonic; business gets stressful; latent issues require therapy. Beyond the buzz of iconoclasm, the filmmakers find these 'lifestyle explorers' in a regular troubled marriage, only with three sides to every problem
