Mark is a young gay man who is addicted to sex and drugs. When he hits bottom, his concerned brother checks him into a Christian retreat in the New Mexico desert. Gayle and Ted are the compassionate husband and wife team who run the retreat. They have made it their mission to cure young men of their 'gay affliction' through spiritual guidance. Mark bonds with fellow resident Scott and their friendship evolves, they are forced to confront their true selves.
The characters and performances in Save Me are excellent (Judith Light is fantastic in her role as the leader of the ministry), but the cinematography is equally wonderful. The movie is filmed in New Mexico and I found myself marveling at the deeply blue sky and oasis-like ranch house in the middle of the desert. If you have ever heard the words "Lord, heal our brokenness" this movie is for you.
