Short Film: MAD ABOUT THE BOY, 8min., UK, Musical/LGBT

D5bbe6cdaf poster

British born Pakistani singer and songwriter duo, Sidique and Kamaal are in love. They secretly elope and have a gay marriage in Leicester.

When Kamaal marries Rukhsana in Pakistan to maintain his heterosexual facade, Sidique is angry and lost. His marriage to Kamaal is completely disregarded in a country where homosexuality is illegal.

When Kamaal’s career propels him to stardom, Sidique and Rukhsana find solace in each other. The more Sidique tries to distance himself from Kamaal, the more Kamaal yearns for Sidique’s touch and songs, and the closer the innocent Rukhsana is getting to Sidique. Will Rukhsana and Sidique break free from Kamaal, a boy they are both madly in love with.
