Synopsis

Desperate for intimacy, Ali follows his girlfriend’s suggestion that puts their relationship to the test. The plan unfolds unexpectedly when gender roles become blurred.

Director’s Statement

I belong in a society where couples are pushed to extreme measures to express their love for each other. Sahbety explores how gender constraints are shaping our perspective for our own identity. This film takes an up close look at a couple that are motivated by love and challenged by conventional gender norms through questioning: What if the tables were turned?
