“Grow And Live Normally” is a clinic in Ecuador that was opened to treat general addictions before moving to what the religious families viewed as the ultimate sin – homosexuality. The center boasts that they alone are able to cure families of this hidden secret inflicting their children. The unfortunate youths are misunderstood in a time when homosexuality was not just frowned upon, but also illegal. They are sent to the clinic by their families where they are held against their will in the sexual reorientation wing. They find themselves subjected to physical and emotional trauma that tests their strength to survive and their courage to fight for their identities.
Inspired by true events, “A Safe Place With You” follows a young man named Tomás Díaz and his group of new found friends as they try to find themselves during an era of heightened ignorance and hatred.
Will they be able to survive the closed doors of Grow and Live Normally?
At its core, this is a story about love.
