Conversion Therapy is revealed from within for the first time. Lev, a 54 year-old divorced Orthodox Jew, attends conversion therapy hoping to be remarried to a woman. He attends one-on-one therapy sessions and group therapy, believing his unwanted same-sex attractions will disappear.
At the same time, Ben, a 23-year-old social work student, seven years into conversion therapy, starts having doubts. In the Jewish Orthodox world, where he grew up, he was taught homosexuality is a fault that one can “cure”. But when he went to university he was surprised to discover conversion therapy is considered harmful and dangerous. Ben sets out on a research to discover the truth about conversion therapy, and learns that the way out is harder than he thought.
