A textured film that travels back to the early 1980s when the filmmaker was growing up with closeted gay parents in a small, Mid-western town. By weaving together a collection of home movies with conversations with her parents recorded via webcam, Small Town Secrets remembers why keeping it a secret felt like the only option.
