Jeunes et idéalistes, six amis décident de fuir et de vivre ensemble, en dépit des normes sociales et religieuses, à la suite du coming-out de l’un d’entre eux et de l’arrivée de son petit ami, battu par sa famille. Proclamé 1er film gay libanais et tourné sous protection militaire, Out Loud représente le désir de liberté d’une jeunesse libanaise contemporaine. Sa relative naïveté dans la mise en scène est rattrapée par l’audace de son propos, sa spontanéité et la poésie de plusieurs séquences musicales.
