BREAKING FAST is a romantic comedy drama that follows Mo, an Arab-American man living in West Hollywood and learning how to navigate life post-heartbreak. Enter Kal, a sweet All-American guy who surprises Mo by offering to break fast with him during the 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.
The short film enjoyed international acclaim through the likes of Cannes, Inside Out, Newport, Boston and many more. The full-length feature film is fully developed, and aims to be the first of its kind to feature a practicing Muslim character who is gay and not dealing with those two things in conflict but in harmony. It will not only add to the cultural conversation, it will change it.
"My intention is to tell a story that speaks to the nuances of daily life and treats identity: religious, sexual, gender and otherwise, as harmonious lenses by which individuals interact with the world around them."
- Mike Mosallam
