Abigail Disney's new documentary "The Armor of Light" follows an Evangelical minister and the mother of a teenage shooting victim who ask if it's possible to be both pro-gun and pro-life. The two unlikely allies share their trials of conscience, heartbreak and rejection, as they attempt to make others consider America’s gun culture through a moral lens. The film is also a courageous look at our fractured political culture and an assertion that it is, indeed, possible for people to come together across deep party lines to find common ground.

"The Armor of Light" hits theaters on October 30.
