THE ABOMINABLE CRIME is a riveting documentary that explores the religious-based culture of homophobia in Jamaica through the eyes of gay Jamaicans forced to choose between their homeland and their lives.
With personal accounts from Jamaica's leading human-rights activist and a young lesbian single mother who survives a brutal anti-gay shooting, the film's characters take the audience on an emotionally gripping journey over four years and across five countries, offering an intimate first-person perspective on the risks and challenges of seeking asylum abroad.
