Mo (Haaz Sleiman) is a doctor who lives a Muslim lifestyle in West Hollywood. After a heartbreaking breakup, Mo is learning to navigate life as a single man, luckily with the support of his overbearing but very protective mother (Ruja Gardenier). Then enter Kal. Kal (an excellent Michael Cassidy), a very good looking and an All-American guy 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. But Kal has lots of family issues, and Mo wants to keep his life simple, letting his campy best friend Sam (Amin El Gamal) hijack his social life. But Mr. right is right in front of Mo’s face, will Mo ever realize it?
