On May 6th, 2009 Maine became the first state in this country to legislatively grant same-sex couples the right to marry. Seven months later, on November 3rd, 2009 Maine reversed, becoming the thirty-first state in this country to say "no" to gay and lesbian marriage. It was an outcome that took the country by storm, and surprised many. QUESTION ONE chronicles the fierce and emotional battle that took place in Maine during that time, a battle with political symbolism as a bellwether for the greater ideological battlefield in American politics. The film follows several intimates from both sides of the campaign and tells the story not just of the battle of the referendum, but the motivations of those that give so much of themselves to the campaign. Unrated. 95 Min.
