Plot Synopsis

While on shore leave in Japan, sailor Allen Schindler was followed into a restroom and beaten to death. While given a military funeral, it was a full two months until his mother, Dorothy Hajdys, discovered that he had been killed by two of his shipmates because he was gay. This quite woman confronts the military to prevent an attempted cover-up of the hate crime and bring justice to her son's killers. In doing so, she comes to grips with her own homophobia.
