From a Miami comic-book convention to a Christian men’s retreat in Georgia, from an elite New Age wellness center to a BDSM dungeon in Manhattan, Origin Story follows one gay man’s quest to determine the nature of healing and the price we pay for it. Peter Edelman, a progressive Jewish activist, and his partner, fashion photographer Julian Selkirk, must navigate Peter’s first long-term relationship against the backdrop of late-1990s New York City sexual politics. While working in a transitional home for at-risk youth, Peter collaborates with a teenage bi-gendered artist on a gay superhero comic with themes echoing his own long-repressed traumatic memories.
