Irish Goodbye

 

The story of Nizar, a young closeted-gay, conflicted but devout Muslim refugee from Syria and his night out with a quixotic Irishman, Eric. Along the way They will confront issues of trust, abandonment, tragedy, and privilege. Eric seeks to seduce and draw Nizar out of his shell while Nizar confronts Eric for being nothing more than an emotional tourist in his life. The consequences of their adventure will haunt Nizar for long after the night is over.
