To A More Perfect Union: U.S. v Windsor tells a story of love, marriage and a fight for equality. The documentary chronicles unlikely heroes – octogenarian Edie Windsor and her attorney, Roberta Kaplan, on their quest for justice. Beyond the story of what became the pivotal case in the marriage equality movement and the compelling personal, legal and political stories behind it, the film also chronicles our continued journey as a people, as a culture, and as citizens with the promise of equal rights.
