Private Project


Shame or Honour involves two, young Muslim, gay men Sam and Mo, who have an eventful first date at a night club, following a terrorist attack, but that’s neither the beginning nor the end, of their personal struggles. Meanwhile, in a separate story, the terrorist’s identity unfolds.

Plot for Mo and Sam
The story opens in a back alley, where we’re introduced to two young survivors of a bomb attack on a gay nightclub –Sam and Mo, together with the attentive Magenta a cross-dresser. While both are physically intact, Mo’s shirt is soaked in blood. Obviously, he just wants to go home or does he? It might not be the safest place to be.

Plot for Ayesha (Terrorist)
In a parallel story, Ayesha sees her boyfriend arrested on suspicion of terrorist activity. She now needs to carry out the attack alone. Ayesha knows that homosexuality is wrong especially during Ramadan, she needs to act. But who is Ayesha?
