Overview
The Supreme Court has spoken, and the “moral arc of justice” has finally bent towards marriage equality. Undeterred and still bitter over the Court’s decision, Governor Richard Baine imposes a reactionary social and economic agenda in order to formulate a bid for his party’s nomination for the White House. When the ripples of his austerity program begin to have negative consequences, Donald Ross and his family begin mobilizing the progressive faith community in a passionate witness to civil action. Meanwhile, Daniel Shelby, the openly gay son of the state’s most prominent socially conservative minister, launches his own campaign to live his own life with dignity and pride. Throughout this sequel to “Donald’s Cross,” new characters will be introduced, questions will be answered, and greater insight into Donnie’s psyche will emerge.
