The Choice of Love is a short documentary examining the intersection of Islam and LGBTQ identity. Through meetings with the first openly gay Muslim in Norway, Kaltham Alexander Lie, the leader of the Islamic Union of Oslo, Basim Ghozlan and an anonymous interview with a gay Muslim, the director tries to understand what it means to live without the freedom and to love whoever you want to love.
