Class, cultural and sexual differences are explored in this romantic gay drama set in sun-splashed Tunisia. Thirty-year old Malik returns to his homeland after the death of his father where he is greeted by his over-bearing mother who desperately wants to see him stay and get married. But instead, Malik meets and falls in love with the darkly handsome handyman. They begin a tentative relationship, but Islamic mores, a still class concious society, and the ever-presence of his mother threaten their burgeoning love.
