Theodora is a dyke with a yearning for the sacred. Her life with Celeste is abundant, bliss-ridden, made it heaven - but how can she find a home for her spiritual instincts when religions condemn the very love of her life? With her heart on her sleeve and her soul on the line, Theodora sets out to reconcile her two sources of joy. She'll push aside the popes, fundamentalists and born-again virgins to get to the core of this - are homosexuals really breaking the laws of the cosmos? Or is transcendence not about sex at all?
