Synopsis

Mahmoud, the founder of the LGBTI movement in Syria and himself a refugee in Berlin, tries to launch a Mr Gay Syria competition within a Turkish refugee camp, with a view to going on to compete in Mr Gay Universe. A handful of candidates show up : Hussein, the father of a young girl and a hairdresser, and still in the closet ; Omar, a totally extrovert cook ; Wissam, who's convinced that a pair of cute shorts and Minnie Mouse ears will win over the jury ; as well as a few others... Between life in the camps and the delirious moments of preparation, linking hope and resistance, this film is a simply wonderful ode to life.
