Trembling Before God

The daily struggles faced by Hasidic and Orthodox Jews who are also part of the gay and lesbian community is the subject of this compelling documentary. Choosing not to turn their backs on their faith, these courageous men and women instead attempt to find a place for themselves in a religion that firmly disapproves of their lifestyle.
