‘Bridegroom’ chronicles the story of Shane Bitney Crone and his partner Thomas Lee ‘Tom’ Bridegroom, who died in a tragic accident. After Bridegroom’s death, Crone found himself cut off and deprived of any legal protection. The film tells the story of their 6-year-long relationship, and the struggles Crone faced after Bridegroom’s death, including the family not allowing Crone to attend the funeral of his life partner.

The story is told by Shane Bitney Crone, family and friends. Vèry touching! One of the most ‘beautiful’ films I’ve èver seen!
