Save Me is a 2007 film directed by Robert Cary about Mark (Chad Allen), a drug-addicted homosexual man who is admitted into an ex-gay program run by Gayle (Judith Light) and her husband Ted (Stephen Lang). The film premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and was later picked up for distribution by independent studio First Run Features.
In September 2008 the film began its limited theatrical release in select markets in the United States.
When Mark—a young gay man addicted to sex and drugs—hits bottom, his concerned brother checks him into a Christian retreat in the New Mexico desert. Run by a compassionate husband and wife team, Gayle and Ted have made it their life's mission to "cure" young men of their 'gay affliction' through spiritual guidance. At first, Mark resists, but soon takes the message to heart. As Mark's fellowship with his fellow Ex-Gays grow stronger, however, he finds himself powerfully drawn to Scott, another young man battling family demons of his own. As their friendship begins to develop into romance, Mark and Scott are forced to confront their true selves.
