A highly textured film that travels back to the early 1980s when the filmmaker was growing up with closeted gay parents in a small, Midwestern town. By weaving together a collection of super 8mm home movies and conversations with her parents recorded through webcam, "Small Town Secrets" remembers why keeping a secret felt like the only option.
