Taking A Chance on God tells the story of 86 year-old John McNeill, Catholic priest and pioneering
advocate for LGBT human rights. The film traces his life – from a childhood in Buffalo, his months as
a prisoner of war in Nazi Germany, his call to the Jesuit priesthood, and his ongoing passion for
justice and equality.
