Out Loud is a tale of unusual friendship and love in Lebanon, a nation that has been plagued by civil war for decades and where untraditional relationships and ideas are met with violence and hatred.  Struggling against their pasts, challenged by desire and the search for freedom, and facing a future of uncertainty, a group of friends comes to realize what it truly means to live outside the archaic social restrictions that have been forced upon them, and what it means to speak out loud.
