    The writing is beyond terrible but the story is horribly sad.

    So for anyone struggling thru it, I don't think this is a spoiler, better to know the story and then the vid will make better sense:

    Kid tells parents at age 12 that he's gay. Has an openly gay uncle. Parents are xtian and insist he choose between Jesus or being a sexual being. That turns into self hate which turns to drug abuse. There's a point of recovering from drugs when family is reunited, family accepts their kid's sexuality but then he falls back into drugs, OD's and dies. So the parents now live with that guilt.
