Whose Gonna Love Me Now? follows the inspirational and intensely personal journey of Saar, an Israeli man rejected by his religious family and community. He leaves Israel to live freely as a gay man in London but is subsequently diagnosed as HIV positive. With the camaraderie, support and love of his friends in his adoptive city, and fellow members of the London’s Gay Men’s Chorus, Saar begins to repair the relationships with his family and the country he left behind. The London Gay Men’s Chorus provides a glorious soundtrack for this documentary about the power of forgiveness and the pull of home no matter how far away one goes.
