Synopsis

The film recounts two days in the lives of five very different characters all born on July 12, that are faced with problems as their birthday approaches. Jim (Benjamin Patrick), a gay, overweight telemarketer working for a weight loss program is facing self-esteem issues, whereas Ron (John Frazier), a church minister who preaches about conversion but himself is addicted to watching gay porn, and Javed (Devashish Saxena), a Pakistani lives in the U.S. with a gay porn actor but is faced by the double dilemma of being condemned by his Muslim family and is in imminent danger of being deported from the States.

Meanwhile, Kelly (Michelle E. Michael), a young lesbian weathers a breakup with her lover and considers an earlier affair and Tracy (Ethel Lung), an Asian lesbian, goes back in the closet when her mother renders a visit.
