The film, Jaye’s second feature, delves into the story of a private Californian married gay couple and their two adopted children as they fight back against discrimination, ignorance and hate through home videos posted on their YouTube channel, Gay Family Values. As they pursue their American Dream, the opposing political, social and religious opinions that pervade society attempts to strip it from them.
"The movie paints a clear picture of the polarizing, largely unsettled state of marriage equality,” states Gary Goldstein from the Los Angeles Times. Kristina Bravo in an LA Weekly review writes, “Jaye leaves her audience more enlightened thanks to her exploration of the intellectual and political issues at hand, but the film's humanity is what ultimately gets her message across.”
Jaye’s first feature film on sex education, "Daddy I Do", won multiple Best Documentary awards from film festivals across the world including the 2010 Cannes Independent Film Festival, Action On Film International Film Festival and the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema. The film’s wins also include Best Docu Drama from the Bare Bones Film Festival and the Audience Award from the Columbia Gorge Film Festival. Jaye’s short film, "Faces Overlooked", won second place in Faces of Hunger in America, a national film competition hosted by the Palms for Life Fund, which asked young filmmakers to profile hunger in their community. "Faces Overlooked" offered shocking insight into hunger in Marin, the wealthiest county in California.
