Everett Klippert was the last person to be tried, convicted, and jailed for homosexuality in Canada. Pierre Trudeau, acting as Justice Minister, referred to the case with ‘there’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.’ Maxine, a young historian today, becomes consumed with finding out who he really was, past the headlines. We move between Klippert’s life and Maxine’s work to understand him. This is the story of the struggle to define Klippert, beyond what history wants and needs him to be.
