The true story of the neighborhood Harvey Milk made famous, from its earliest days to what he helped it become. Known internationally as the world's first "gay hometown", San Francisco's Castro district began as a quiet, working class neighborhood of European immigrants.
In this moving documentary, filled with rare archival footage and photographs, the story of the Castro's transformation is told by those who lived it, young and old, straight and gay. It is a tale of soclal upheaval...exuberant street culture...political assassination...and the inspiring coming-of-age of an entire community.
