Update – Another plot aynopsis reads as follows:
“His beard scruffy and brow furrowed, Joe Bell (Mark Wahlberg) is the picture of heartland manhood. As husband and father, he’s not above shouting to get what he wants; in fact, he hardly knows any other way. But Joe’s teenage son Jadin (Reid Miller) has grown into a beautiful, talented young gay man. He’s bullied mercilessly at his high school, and Joe’s grudging ‘tolerance’ of his son is no help.
Jadin suffers brutal homophobia at school and visible embarrassment at home from his father. He sees no other way out but suicide.
Joe could have been permanently broken by regret, but instead sets out on a mission. He will walk across America, speaking to school groups, communities, anyone who will listen, about the corrosive dangers of bullying.”
