Based on true events that ensued in a Kingdom in the Middle East, Louie, a closeted young gay man, has been forcibly brought back from California because of a drug rumor less than two months from his arrival. Just a few weeks after his regression back into the Kingdom, his mother dies under suspicious circumstances, and Louie is alone with a secret--a secret that, if revealed, could lead to him being disowned by his family, or even killed. While struggling with his situation and battling depression, Louie meets John on a gay dating website, not realizing John has his own secret, and malicious plan.
