FAMILY COMMITMENTS

The happy gay couple David (38) and Khaled (29) would love to marry publicly – if there weren't Khaled's Arab family, David's pseudo-orthodox Jewish mother and an unexpected pregnancy. Misunderstandings, outing fears, a possible paternity and an art gallery insolvency are driving these contradictory families into an emotional chaos and beyond their borders.
