LAKELAND, Fla.| Local filmmaker Kevin O’Brien’s religious LGBTQ film “At the End of the Day,” about a conservative professor going undercover in what turns out to be an LGBTQ support group, is being released on digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon and Google Play on Feb. 26.

The award-winning film was written, directed and co-produced (along with his wife, Teresa) by O’Brien and stars Stephen Shane Martin, Danielle Sagona, Tom Nowicki, Chris Cavalier and Susan Mulholland.

After losing his wife and counseling practice, the only thing 32-year-old Dave Hopper (Martin) has going for himself is his part-time professorship at his alma mater, a growing Christian college. When a property the college wants to develop has been promised to a gay support group if they can raise the funds to buy it, the dean of the college (Nowicki) offers Dave his dream job if he goes undercover in the group and stops them from raising the money. Dave reluctantly agrees, and for the first time, is met face-to-face with the community he has been counseling against his entire career. The awkward and emotional experiences that follow lead Dave on a journey of truth, revealing that life and love are not as black and white as he first thought.

“At the End of the Day” was an official selection at both the Tampa Bay International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and the Orlando Film Festival in 2018, and has played at several film festivals across the country. The film is a passion project for O’Brien who was raised in a conservative Christian home and grew up seeing the conflicts between LGBTQ communities and the church.

“It is my hope that ‘At the End of the Day’ can bring healing to many who have been harmed, encouragement to those who have been doing the hard work of equality and an opportunity for others to question their black-and-white worldview,” O’Brien said.

“At the End of the Day” is currently available for pre-order on iTunes for $14.99. The film can be downloaded on all available platforms starting Feb. 26.
