Mouna and Sam, a young Arab-Australian husband and wife, are both gay but living in a marriage of convenience. Due to the traditions of their Lebanese heritage, coming out as gay to their parents, siblings and extended family, is simply not an option. Thus, they live a lie but they live life to the fullest!
They are ‘out’ to one another, and ‘out’ to their closest friends, but still in the closet when it comes to their families and the wider Lebanese community.
Mouna and Sam deal with family pressure to have children, safe sex, and rebound relationships, orgy etiquette, homophobia, gay stereotyping, open relationships and the damaging power of gossip.
