Karim, a successful Moroccan-Dutch businessman, is so caught up in his panic about coming out to his traditional Muslim parents that he barricades himself in their closet... literally. As he feverishly revisits his childhood memories, negotiates a budding romance with a new Ghanaian boyfriend and wages a long-delayed battle royale to uproot his family's conservative attitudes, he must also face his the societal and personal biases that have brought him to the brink. Fluctuating from humorous to more serious, El Houb (The Love) is a dark comedy loosely based on the experiences and theater work of Fahd Larhzaoui (the actor playing Karim) and starring Lubna Azabal as Karim's ultra-conservative but still loving mother.
