Written by Academy Award-winner Dustin Lance Black (Milk, J. Edgar), "8″ is based on the actual trial transcripts of the federal trial of Prop. 8, first-hand observations of the courtroom drama and interviews with the plaintiffs and their families. Kris & Sandy and Paul & Jeff are two loving couples who want to get married but can't. Together with attorneys David Boies and Ted Olson and a host of expert witnesses, they take aim at Proposition 8, a discriminatory law that took away the right for LGBT couples to marry in California in 2008.
