Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) directs this historical gay rights drama, following a passionate young man who finds himself in the heart of the 1969 Stonewall riots. Stars Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Joey King (The Conjuring) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy).
Danny Winters (Irvine) is forced to leave behind friends and loved ones when he is kicked out of his parent’s home and flees to New York. Alone in Greenwich Village, homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to The Stonewall Inn; however, this shady, mafia-run club is far from a safe haven.
As Danny and his friends experience discrimination, endure atrocities and are repeatedly harassed by the police, a rage builds. The emotion runs through Danny and the community of young gays, lesbians and drag queens who populate the Stonewall Inn and erupts in a storm of anger. With the toss of a single brick, a riot ensues and a crusade for equality is born.
