A translator from the United States Army and an Iraqi solider fell in love in the time of war. However, their love invited death threats. Extremism has been prevailing in the Middle East region, where homosexuals are prosecuted.
The production team of Out of Iraq visited four countries to uncover their 13-year love story. The documentary also documents proof of threats, faced by a pair of homosexual lovers, imposed by an anti-homosexual authoritarian government. For this reason, the only way out for the lovers was to seek refuge and flee their homes. However, it took them a great deal of time in which the lovers had to go through a series of complicated administrative procedures reviewing and examining their conditions and refugee status. This documentary was screened in the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in mid-2016, showcasing the different kinds of difficulties and barriers haunting homosexual refugees.
