CLOSET DOORS explores the other half of the coming out conversation - the one that we never get to hear. 


For parents, that conversation ends with suddenly having to reshape your ideas, plans, and relationship with your child. 


Through a series of interviews, this documentary fixes its lens on the mothers, fathers, grandparents, and guardians of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) individuals who have come out of the closet, and shares with us, for the first time,  the challenges and conversations that start when coming out is the starting point.
