Saying yes to the future means letting go of the past.
From the filmmakers of That's Not Us comes a new feature about relationship and commitment. Integrating interviews with real couples, The Ring Thing explores the intimate constructs of marriage and what it means to be committed - to your partner and to yourself.
When Sarah accidentally proposes to her girlfriend in Provincetown, she finds herself at odds with her partner's expectations of their future. The mixup sends both women on different journeys of marital exploration. Sarah, a documentary filmmaker, begins interviewing same-sex couples in an attempt to overcome her fear of divorce. Kristen, who's ready to tie the knot, sees a future version of her life with Sarah where career and passion threaten to pull the women apart.
