Digital presentation - In a historic decision, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court made that state the first in the nation to legalize same-sex marriage. That puts Massachusetts at the front lines in a war now raging throughout America. On one side are those who believe marriage is a civil right that all couple should have. On the other are people who believe it is a sacred institution reserved for a man and a woman. Both sides believe they are right. And both sides believe they are saving marriage. Three years in the making, Saving Marriage is on the scene as Massachusetts grapples with a simple question: Should gay and lesbian couples have the right to marry? You'll hear the personal stories of people that are shaping history: career politicians who stand up to their constituents and follow their hearts, seasoned lobbyists who see the holy grail of the gay rights movement suddenly within reach and regular people thrust suddenly into the world of politics by an issue that could change their lives.
