MUBI's take

What is love? This timeless million-dollar question is explored by a diverse host of queer voices in Nik Sheehan’s cerebral yet playful documentary. Wondrously varied in their utterances, these musings take on the kaleidoscopic forms of conversation, performance art, and experimental filmmaking.
