"To be physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight" — this is the Boy Scout pledge. Since 1910, millions of boys have joined. But today, if you are openly gay, you can't. Witness how a 12-year-old Boy Scout named Steven Cozza launches a campaign to overturn the Boy Scouts' anti-gay policy. From Petaluma, California to the Supreme Court, the film chronicles a modern interpretation of the scouting ideals of courage and honor.
