Suzie Benack is a professor of psychology at a liberal arts college in upstate New York. She has two children from a previous marriage, and shares a dog, and five cats with her husband, Tom. She’s not from a small town, but the kind of place where she can leave her doors unlocked, and her dog, Roxie is the unofficial block mascot. In almost every sense, she lives a rather conventional life as a wife and empty nester, with one small exception: her husband is gay. THIS AMERICAN WIFE is a short film that explores the relationship between Suzie and Tom from their initial unexpected romance to their success in a relationship that’s lasted over twenty-five years.

Suzie represents a previously hidden group of American wives who successfully partner with gay men and subsequently challenge our notions of love, sexuality and marriage in this country.
