Affirmations Faith Alliance Movie Nights - 4th Mondays from 7pm-9pm

October 27, 7pm-9pm - Latter Days

Christian is the typical LA gay boy: hot tanned body, gorgeous looks, and a taste for the one-night stand. By day, he waits tables at the quaint Lila's where his sexual conquests are frequently discussed with his co-workers. One day, new tenants move into Christian's apartment complex-four young Mormon missionaries, including the sweet and innocent Elder Aaron. As sexual tension builds between Christian and Aaron, the Lila's staff wages a bet that Christian cannot bed his missionary man. The bet is on, but there is a problem-Christian is falling in love with his latter-day saint. To make matters worse, the Mormon condemnation of homosexuality sends our lovelorn heroes into trials of regret, loss, perseverance, and forgiveness.
