In 1975, thanks to a courageous county clerk in Boulder, Colorado, Richard Adams and Anthony "Tony" Sullivan were one of six gay couples to be legally married. When the I.N.S. refused to grant Sullivan, an Australian citizen, resident status based on the marriage, the couple sued to prevent his deportation -- filing the first federal lawsuit seeking equal treatment for same-sex marriages in U.S. history.
LIMITED PARTNERSHIP is the 40-year love story of Richard and Tony, who are so committed to one another they took on the U.S. government for the right to be together. For the first time, through this film, they will go public with their tale of hope and disappointment, deceit and perseverance, and their fight against the anti-gay laws that have continuously tried to tear them apart.
