Mo (past OUTshine Award recipient Haaz Sleiman), a practicing Muslim living in West Hollywood, is learning to navigate life post-heartbreak. Enter hunky, all-American Kal, who surprises Mo by offering to break fast with him during the holy month of Ramadan. As they learn more about each other, they fall in love over what they have in common and what they don't. Breaking Fast is the first of its kind film to feature a practicing Muslim character who is gay and not dealing with those two things in conflict, but rather in harmony. The film is proof that gay, romantic comedies do exist.
