In Tulsa, Oklahoma, a tiny youth centre called Openarms Youth Project is squeezed in between two of the city’s two thousand churches. The centre welcomes young LGBT kids between thirteen and nineteen, who have decided to come out in a very religious society. While the general public opinion towards gays in the USA is slowly changing, this coming-of-age story closely follows the three young protagonists as they struggle to achieve a sense of self in a community that still widely condemns homosexuality. The three characters in the film, Larissa, Benny and "D", all go to the centre where they find love and support to confront the daily drama they are living because of their sexuality. MISFITS is a film about being yourself, even though that choice may cause great personal costs.
Starring Larissa, Benny
