Synopsis

Homosexuality in the Islamic world is the central theme in this film that follows a number of young gay men in Morocco in their quest of their religious and sexual identity. Stimulated by the stereotypes which claim that 'western' values like homosexuality and Muslims seem incompatible the filmmaker traveled to Morocco to meet with gay Muslims. The portrayed men share personal experiences about the double life in which they feel condemned, though some now openly acknowledge their orientation.
