Story Line: Inspired by true events, Jay tells the story of one unique individual who, despite the pressures of a religiously minded family, chooses to follow his heart and falls in love with Daniel, a teenager with an astonishingly similar personality. Though four hundred miles away from each other, they begin a relationship through e-mail, and try to unite despite interferences from their families and the world. In an attempt to unite with his lover, Jay leaves his home and attempts to drive to Northern California. The drive ends in a tragic crash with drunk teenagers and Jay’s death. Though crushed, Daniel becomes happy to learn that Jay’s love will help him to conquer the obstacles in his life and reach all the goals he had set for himself. Most of the situations in the film are real, the characters are all based off of real people and most of the storyline is true.
