Description

TO A MORE PERFECT UNION: US v. WINDSOR chronicles the unlikely heroes, octogenarian Edie Windsor and her attorney Roberta Kaplan, on their quest to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, a law which denied federal benefits to same-sex couples, that had forced Edie to to pay an estate tax bill following the death of her spouse and love of more than forty years, Thea Spyer. More than a just an historic look, TO A MORE PERFECT UNION tells the personal stories of the lives of those involved. And those stories – both separately and together – tell the uniquely American story of our journey as a people, as a culture, and as citizens with the promise equal rights.
