Director Linda Bloodworth Thomason first met the couple at a gay wedding ceremony in Palm Springs:
That night, a couple of unforgettable young men named Shane and Tom joined my table. I learned they were Designing Women fans, madly in love and literally brimming with all their big plans for an exciting life together. Sadly, that possibility ended when Tom was killed in an accident last year. When I heard the news, I was haunted by the sheer weight of Shane’s loss. Even though I barely knew them, their good-hearted demeanors and earnest love had made an indelible impression on me.
She saw Crone’s video a few weeks ago and “was deeply touched. And angered. I called Shane [and] told him I wanted to make a documentary that would tell his and Tom’s love story from beginning to end.”
