Academy Award(R) nominee and Golden Globe(R) winner Sigourney Weaver stars in this emotional true story about a deeply religious suburban housewife and mother who struggles to accept her son's homosexuality. Mary Griffith (Weaver) is a devout Christian who has raised her children with a conservative religious perspective. When her son, Bobby (Ryan Kelley), reveals that he is gay to his older brother, the entire family dynamic is forever shifted. While Bobby's father and siblings slowly come to terms with his homosexuality, Mary turns to her steadfast beliefs in an attempt to "cure" her son. Alienated and quickly becoming more detached from the safety of his close-knit family, Bobby's depression drives him to take drastic - and tragic - actions. "Prayers For Bobby" is the multiple Emmy Award(R) and Golden Globe Award(R) nominated true story of a mother torn between her loyalties, challenged by her faith, and moved by a tragedy that would change her life, and the lives of others, forever. Based on the book "Prayers for Bobby" by Leroy Aarons.
