The title character, Tru (Najarra Townsend), moves from San Francisco with her two lesbian mothers to a conservative suburb in Southern California.

Film critic Roger Ebert caused a controversy when his published review of the film revealed that he stopped watching after only eight minutes. He has since watched and reviewed the entire film and promised to never review a film he has not seen "in its entirety. Never. Ever."
