1998 年秋天,二十一歲的同志馬修.謝巴德被人發現綁在柵欄上渾身是血。他的不幸促成了美國仇恨犯罪法立法,從此馬修之名成為爭取同志人權的悲傷象徵。導演蜜雪兒是馬修生前好友,在他過世十多年後,藉由影像以及家人朋友的回憶,重構這個陽光男孩的面貌。對於深愛馬修的人而言,既是悼念,亦是重生。

On October 7, 1998, University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten and tied to a fence left to die because he was gay. Fifteen years later, Michele Josue, a close friend of Matt's, revisits the shocking case with never-before-seen photos, and rare video footage, as Shepard's all-too-brief life is remembered through the vivid testimonies

of those who knew him best. New revelations emerge in one of the most notorious hate crimes in US history, leading to a searing, poignant, and multilayered biographical and sociological portrait. In the end, the notion of forgiveness--embodied in the moving and courageous final act of Shepard's parents--takes on truly heroic proportions.
